Adventure Time for Parents and Kids!
We are busy moms....we get it. On a good day we barely have time to cross off all the items on our "to do" list, let alone build in quality family time. Research shows that even a small amount of time (10-15 engaged minutes) can do wonders for a child's self-esteem, make them bully-proof and even prevent disease.

Quality time for a quick five!
The staff at This Little Parent... is going nuts for our new Gnome Kits!! Now that summer is here and we are attempting to scale back our work time, QUALITY is Key!

It turns out that staying fully engaged with your kids in a fun activity for only 15 minutes each day creates memorable moments that proves to be SO valuable ... that they may even forgive you for working at home.

Oh... the irony.
Get your kids off of their electronic devices with... (are you ready?)... AN APP!

When it comes to screen time, we don't always make the best choices. We are all guilty of handing our digital devices over to our kids to keep them occupied while we grab a few minutes of uninterrupted adult time. Whether you need that time to make a quick phone call or send an email... navigating your way through summer vacation can be the biggest challenge for work-at-home moms.

This summer, deepen your connection with your kids!
Simply follow the "Gnome Prescription" of taking tiny daily adventures with your children and create quality experiences for the entire family that fit snug into just 15 minutes!

On Today's Show
Quality Time Goes A LONG Way!
Meet the creator of the revolutionary new App for moms and kids, Gnome On the Roam! As a working mom, Anne Armstrong wanted to create more meaningful, creative experiences with her son, but struggled with time management. Tired of feeling guilty, she created an app that provides both education and family fun in 15 minutes a day.

Join us to learn how Gnome on the Roam can allow you to easily:
✔️ find the inspiration for a creative adventure that fits easily into 15 minutes

✔️ slow down long enough to spend real, quality time with your kids

✔️ strengthen your child's creativity and sense of adventure

✔️ buoy your child's sense of worth/esteem/well-being

✔️ actually build new neural pathways in your child's brain (and yours as well)

Dr. Death

Dr. Death

We’re at our most vulnerable when we go to our doctors. We trust the person at the other end of that scalpel. We trust the hospital. We trust the system. Christopher Duntsch was a neurosurgeon who radiated confidence. He claimed he was the best in Dallas. If you had back pain, and had tried everything else, Dr. Duntsch could give you the spine surgery that would take your pain away. But soon his patients started to experience complications, and the system failed to protect them. Which begs the question: who - or what - is that system meant to protect? From Wondery, the network behind the hit podcast Dirty John, DR. DEATH is a story about a charming surgeon, 33 patients and a spineless system. Reported and hosted by Laura Beil.
