Dr. Meg Meeker

I’m Dr. Meg Meeker, a practicing pediatrician, parent, and grandparent in addition to being a coach, speaker, and author, so I’ve seen parenting from every angle.

After helping over 100,000 parents become more consistent role models for their children, I can definitively say that being a great parent doesn’t need to be complicated. It really just comes down to boundaries and discipline.


One of the most common questions that Dr. Meg Meeker gets asked in her pediatric office is, “How do I talk to my kids about puberty?” In this episode, Dr. Meg addresses that very question. Don’t be taken by surprise when the subject of puberty comes up with your kids! Listen in as Dr. Meg discusses the 5 stages of puberty, for both girls and boys. You’ll be equipped to anticipate (and answer) some of the questions that your children will have about their changing bodies. In addition, Dr. Meeker doesn’t shy away from some of the harder-to-talk-about subjects that kids need to be informed of, such as menstruation, wet dreams, and body boundaries. Your child needs positive reassurance from you, their parent, that their body is amazing and wonderful, and that the changes they are experiencing are normal, and nothing to be ashamed of. This candid and informative message from “America’s Mom” will help equip and empower you to confidently share with your kids about puberty, and the changes that they can expect to experience as their bodies grow and change.


Dr. Meg discusses how her goal with each podcast is to help encourage, teach and coach listeners to be the parent that they want to be. She interviews child and adolescent experts so parents can understand why their kids do what they do, and learn how to best respond to their children. Dr. Meg plugs the 3 Points to Ponder found at the end of each episode.. takeaways that parents can start using right away. She encourages listeners to subscribe to the podcast and shares the platforms where the Parenting Great Kids podcast can be found. Lastly, Dr. Meg promotes her subscription-based Parenting Great Kids private online community, explaining what it offers and encouraging parents to sign up at
