    This is such a wonderful sight, I found myself taking notes for almost every video. Especially being a first time mom @ thirty, you think you know what to do until becoming mommy happens then you realize you know nothing. The videos are very refreshing and informative! Thanks

  • This is exactly what I’ve been looking for! I think some parents assume socially responsible children just happen, but as this post shows, parents have to make a conscious effort to instill those values in their children. I’m excited about all the resources provided in this episode, from Dr. Hall’s books, to the websites highlighted at the end. I will definitely check those out and the rest of the Mommy In Chief episodes. I think these will be good to share on my blog. 

    It’s also really cool to see Mrs. Parsons in a new role! I loved what she said at the beginning, “Kids learn attitudes and behaviors early on in life, and they’re best learned from their parents.”

    I don’t have kids, but this issue is so important to me because I’m passionate about changing the future for all children. I think reaching their parents is a great place to start.
