"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

Happy Thanksgiving from Dr. Meg! Parents, this week is a great opportunity to teach your children how to be grateful. Dr. Meg shares about an organization she supports called Food For The Hungry in Bolivia. Food for the Hungry teaches parents how to grow vegetables, raise fish farms and provide lifesaving nutrients to their starving children. She recently visited Food for the Hungry in Bolivia with her son because she believes that the best way to teach children to be grateful is through teaching them to serve those who are less fortunate. Dr. Meg also talks about gratitude and offers her Points To Ponder. Also featured, a question from a mother who feels her 6-year-old boy is starting to engage in inappropriate boy talk with other boys. Send questions to askmeg@megmeekermd.com
