Ask Dr. Meg

Eliminate rudeness, defiance, and backtalk, all without yelling or blowing your own fuse. Have more energy to enjoy time with your kids, instead of feeling drained and frustrated by them.

Have a question about a previous Podcast episode, a parenting principle, or something with YOUR specific parenting situation?

If you have a burning question, chances are, other parents have the same question.

You can leave a question through a “voicemail” or by typing your question in the comment area below. These questions will be collected and used for responses on Meg’s Podcast, “Parenting Great Kids,” on her Facebook Page, and in the private community for parents “The Fearless Parenting Community.”

Here are a few simple guidelines:

  • State your first name and where you’re calling from. 
  • Feel free to mention the age and gender of your child if you are asking a specific question
  • Feel free to mention your website or blog, but don’t get too spammy. (You don’t need to mention the “www,” you can just give the URL.
  • Keep your question under 1 minute. 
  • Limit to one question per voicemail, but feel free to leave multiple voicemails!

NOTE: By submitting a question, you are giving permission for your question and the response to be shared publicly. Leave out any personal identifying details.

Here’s a good template for you to follow:
