Summary


Today’s guest Jen Lumanlan is the host of the fascinating “Your Parenting Mojo” podcast, which is all about helping parents find (and fine-tune) their own unique way of raising their kids. I’ve wanted to meet Jen Lumanlan ever since I heard her story.
Jen decided to turn her self-proclaimed lack of parenting intuition into an opportunity by using her love for research to bridge the gap (hmm… sounds familiar!). She now has both a master’s degree in psychology and education and shares what she’s learned with parents everywhere.
If you’re a parent and want some new ideas based on scientific research and the principles of respectful parenting, check out the Your Parenting Mojo podcast. I’ve been listening for a while now and it’s hands-down amazing… let me know what you think!
