"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

As our country faces a crisis unlike anything we have faced, Dr. Meeker felt it was important to talk to you about Coronavirus. All of us are working diligently to keep our families protected and naturally there are concerns about whether we are doing the right things or doing enough to stay well. In today’s episode, Dr. Meg gives you practical advice on taking care of your family, teaching your kids about avoiding infection, and what to do if you think you have been exposed to Coronavirus. Your kids need to be able to look to their parents for great information, instructions on what to do, and know that their family is going to be ok, and you are just the great parent to do that! Also in this episode, Dr. Meg will give you her points to ponder that you can start using right away and answers a question from two different moms about the impact of Coronavirus on their families. If you have a question you want Dr. Meeker to answer in a future episode or on the Meeker Parenting Community page, email them to askmeg@megmeekermd.com and listen to see if your question is featured next!
