I get a lot of questions emailed to me about parenting and supporting our awesome kids, and while I would love to respond to every single one, it’s just not possible or I would spend all of my time replying to emails.

So I’ve decided to record periodic solocast episodes where I answer some of the common questions I get from people in the Tilt community. And as part of that, I feel compelled to include a disclaimer — and that is to say that I don’t have the answers to everything and all problems. Obviously I am in this with you. But I’m happy to share what I know from my experience and training and what I’ve gleaned from the many parenting experts I have the opportunity to learn from and that I consider colleagues and friends.

I’ll also do my best to share resources with you to dive deeper into the concepts that I talk about on these shows, including books you might want to check out, other podcasts to listen to, and anything else I can come up with to support you through this time. 

I’ll do these solocast episodes every few months and we’ll see how it goes! If you have questions that you want me to answer for future episodes, you can either fill out the podcast suggestion form on the Tilt Parenting, or you can email your question to me at debbie@tiltparenting.com.  Again, I get a lot of emails everyday, so if you write to me and you don’t hear back from me, know that I did receive it, I did read it, and I’ll do my best to answer your question on a future episode.
