So thorough, honest, and practical, Oh. My. Word. has given me much to think about and discuss with my co-parent and especially, my 3 little ones! I found the entire course to be engaging and tailored to help me navigate an aspect of parenting that is so crucial! It is rare that we, as parents, get a workbook on how to do this thing called parenting, but Oh. My. Word. literally wrote out the script to follow in some instances. I have already found myself having more honest and open conversations with my kids about their bodies, relationships, and sex. I cannot recommend this enough for any other parents out there! They say it takes a village and I hope my whole village will use Oh. My. Word. so we can have impact on our own and each others' kids, as they are the future!


I mostly parent the way I was raised, so in this general arena, I would be lying if I said I was educating and informing my kids well. OH MY WORD has empowered me as a mother to fill in the blanks of where my parents left off. Listening to this course made me feel like I was talking to two well-informed big sisters who just wanted to simply present the facts and leave me to insert my values. It wasn’t easy listening to sometimes uncomfortable topics, but doing the hard work as a parent never is. In the short time I’ve listened, I can already I feel more confident in taking the tiny moments to engage and inform my kids. I can’t wait to get my husband to listen too.
