27 Parenting Podcasts for the 21st Century parents

You can’t have failed to notice how many ways we can find information. Podcasts have become a really important way that you will learn, are entertained, inspired, take action and grow. Podcasts are produced by enthusiastic hosts passionate about their subjects. The parenting world has a range of podcasts which are a perfect way to listen to information and be part of a community connected without boundaries. They offer comment on current issues in a way that leaves you thinking long after the show is over and urge you to take some action.

Podcasts in general take a huge amount of time to produce and in the parenting world this coupled unpredictable nature of it with more kids coming along, new directions, maternity leave over and normal life there is a tendency to see your favourite show on hiatus or podfade.

The podcasts listed here are in no particular order. They were all current for 2012. Visit the website or better yet download a show and let the host know what you think. They will appreciate it.

Unstructured Summers

This is exactly what we’re doing this summer. Lots of impromptu activities and a few planned.

But mostly our timetable looks blank.

It’s how we like it.

Just for fun I messed around with this type of video yesterday.
Let me know your experiences 🙂

One Sunny day

I did another one called One Afternoon
Enjoy!

Family night and dinnertime play activities- June

Dinner time and play isn’t the first thing that comes to mind with children.

But it’s the one time where we can all connect together with a focus in mind. If you’ve ever struggled with getting a conversation going you’ll know how hard it is to find open ended questions after you’ve spent a good while getting everything ready for the meal. Commonly, we are so exhausted from it all.

This is the sixth monthly edition of the Dinnight play activities. To find out more about check out the other free monthly downloads.

Family night and dinnertime play activities- April

What’s family dinner like in your home? Probably pretty busy. Anytime for play activities?

Family meal times can be a really chaotic time of day with the bewitching hour close by/ clubs and activities/ and the general hustle and bustle of preparing a meal with children underfoot. By the time we make it to the table we’re all a little frazzled. Once we start eating we try a conversation and get mixed results.

 

Dinner time is a great time to connect and feel that family bond. We’ve had a lot of success with Dinner games and now were extending the fun.

Extending the fun

During the meal we try the conversation starters to get to know our children. Then move onto family night activities.

At the end of each month I’ll be sharing a download full of activities to try over the month for dinner conversation and together family activities.
