What if you could use science to help you create a respectful and loving relationship with your children?

After becoming a parent, today’s guest Jen Lumanlan got her Master’s in Psychology with a special focus on Child Development so that she could better understand how to parent her daughter.

As a result, Jen dove deep into the research behind effective parenting and was so blown away by what she discovered, she created The Parenting Mojo Podcast – a resource for parents of toddlers and preschoolers that’s based on scientific research and respectful parenting principles.

On today’s episode, we are learning about Jen’s personal background, her journey towards motherhood, and what her top parenting tips are for developing a loving and respectful relationship with your children.

About Jen Lumanlan


Jen Lumanlan is the parent of an almost four-year-old who realized that she had no parenting intuition whatsoever but great research skills, and she decided to solve the problem with the former by getting a Master’s in Psychology focused on Child development, and later a Master’s in Education. Along the way she started a podcast called Your Parenting Mojo so she could share what she was learning with others – with over sixty episodes released, the show is a reference guide for parents of toddlers and preschoolers based on scientific research and the principles of respectful parenting.
