to make your family life a little better each week


Hi, I'm Rachel

Lover of practical ideas, conversations with kindred spirits, and my two wild children who keep life interesting.  I combined all of these passions when I created 3 in 30, a podcast for moms who want doable takeaways to try with their families - strategies to help us manage the madness and maximize the magic of motherhood.

3 in 30 Podcast
When was the last time you felt "triggered" as a parent? 🙄 Was it when your teenager rolled their eyes at you with a dramatic sigh? 👩‍🍳 Was it when your toddler pushed away their yogurt and yelled "Don't want it!" right after they specifically requested it? 💻 How about when your nine-year-old snuck their school-issued Chromebook in the middle of the night and went on a YouTube binge? If you are a human parent, then I know you've been triggered before. Which is why you need this week's episode with Nat Vikitsreth @comebacktocare about navigating our parenting triggers. Nat is a licensed clinical psychotherapist, a graduate school lecturer, a social justice practitioner, and a podcast host.In this episode, she teaches us how to identify, contextualize, and make peace with our triggers, so we can parent from our VALUES, even when we make “mistakes.” If you’ve already listened, let me know what you learned in the comments below! 👇🏼 ...
