Parent Wise with Monica Irvine


Thank you for your willingness to listen to Parent Wise with Monica Irvine.  This podcast is focused on helping parents to be their best selves.  Over the years, I have interviewed and studied and listened to hundreds of moms and dads share their inner most fears, failures, stressors, anxiety pitfalls, frustrations and discouragements.  If you’re a parent, then you know that we have days where we feel like failures or we’re afraid because we don’t know what to do or how to fix the problem in front of us.  We worry so much about the choices our children are making and we continually pray for answers.

Please come and listen and lay down your concerns and allow this conversation to be a source of healing, guidance, counsel, motivation, and an enormous dose of love for you and your beautiful children.  I don’t have all the answers of course, but I have learned many things over the years and I would like to share with you what I’ve learned, what I’ve changed and what I would have done differently, had I known.  Gleaning from other parents who have been there before us, has always been the greatest treasure to me.  I want this to be a great treasure for you and your family too.
