Parenting in the First 3 Years Podcast

#0: Trailer

with Ann McKitrick


You know, there’s a transition that takes place when we become a parent.

It looks different for everyone and it’s not just one-and-done. It’s a transition that repeats itself in every stage of parenting – from before pregnancy or filling out the adoption paperwork, through parenthood to being empty nesters, then grandparents.

Understanding yourself is essential in understanding your child. And understanding your child is very important in understanding yourself and the responses you have to the everyday ups and downs that are a natural part of becoming a family.

This understanding, this nurturing of both your child and yourself, is what we’re going to explore in this podcast.
