"Great children are raised, not born. Great parents are taught, not born. Are you ready for greatness?"

Today's Guest(s)

I'm Dr. Meg Meeker, a practicing pediatrician, parent, and grandparent in addition to being a coach, speaker, and author, so I've seen parenting from every angle.

After helping over 100,000 parents become more consistent role models for their children, I can definitively say that being a great parent doesn’t need to be complicated. It really just comes down to boundaries and discipline.

SHOW NOTES

It’s the Christmas season, and in light of that, Dr. Meg wanted to do a special Christmas edition of the Parenting Great Kids podcast! If you can learn how to deal with the struggles, joys, and different aspects of Christmas that families deal with every holiday season, you really can make the best of the time with family and friends as Dr. Meg hopes for each of you. Because it’s such a special time of year, Dr. Meeker takes the entire episode to talk about Christmas and didn’t have time for a guest interview or listener questions. As always, if you have a question you want Dr. Meeker to answer in a future episode, email them to askmeg@megmeekermd.com and listen to see if your question is featured next!
