Pieces of Dr. Laura Wisdom

Dr. Laura:

I discovered you about five years ago, and I've enjoyed listening to you immensely.  Although my liberally raised self sometimes disagrees with you, I find it amusing that I've been living most of your principles all along!  I dated my husband for four years before we married, but mostly because we wanted to wait until we were out of our early 20s.  He proposed, I said yes, we got married, and had two sons (in that order)! 

Our boys are six and eight and I am a stay-at-home mom.  I don't let them listen to your show all that often because sometimes the topics are a little bit too adult for them, but they have heard you before and know your voice well.  I never knew they were REALLY listening until I was putting my clothes away in the closet with my 8-year-old one day.  During the course of our conversation, I must have given him one too many pieces of "Dr. Laura wisdom," because he said (rather snarkily):  "I know, Mom, I can't live with a girl until I get married, I can't have babies until after I'm married, and I have to marry a girl who will stay home with our kids!!"  Even though I wanted to scold him for the snark, how could I when I know WE had gotten through to him?  That was a proud moment for me and I hope it is for you, as well.  Now I know I'm raising a real man.  Thank you!

Remember that you can either read "The Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands," or you can take my video course based on the book.  To find out more about the course, go to marriage one oh one dot com.
