Thank you for this podcast and particularly this subject series! I was looking for any advice to help me, help my daughter through some difficult times and if nothing else, this has helped me to feel not so alone in what we're going through. It has given me great comfort in reminding me that God has a plan for us and it is in His timing. Thank you!

This is nothing but a commercial for their guests' book. There is nothing in this podcast that is helpful at all. I'm very disappointed.

Dr. Dobson loves children and families. This comes through in his podcasts. He does an excellent job.

The topics covered on Strong Willed Child made me want to cry because what was spoken was exactly what I've been going through with my 2.5 year old. I enjoyed these podcasts and will listen over and over.

I listen to all three of the Dobson podcasts, and really enjoy the way the content is presented here. As I said in my other review sometimes it feels a bit like an ad, but the content is still solid. If you like Dobson and what he has to say and really like 10-15 min podcasts, this is most definatly for you.
