In The Loop with Andy Andrews, hosted by David Loy


On this week’s episode, I talk about the first steps Polly and I took when we found out we were going to be parents.


I never expected to do anything like this, but I think this is the most important thing I’ve ever done.


15 years ago when Polly sat me down and said “we are going to have a baby,” I was excited…and then broke out in a cold sweat.  

  • I really dug into parenting right from the beginning.

  • I wanted to give my wife and I more certainty for this life we were about to guide.


I believe you can know how to do a certain thing, but…

  • If you don’t know why it works then you’ll always be tempted to move away from it, do it too much, or do it too little.

  • I talk to more people who have issues with their adult children than I do to people who have issues with their kids. 


For a long time I didn’t want to do a parenting course because I’ve taken several courses and read fifty books.

  • The thing that got me about the parenting courses was that there was no proof.

  • There were examples, great ideas, life lessons, and principles, but there was no proof.

  • There was never anything where you said, “That is absolutely right and will work every time!”


This course is going to be all encompassing. Make sure you are on our email list so you can get the latest details about it.

    As a Mother of two, Grandmother of five, and great-grandmother of ten I am so excited about what Andy is doing. Can’t wait to see the finished product.
    Methods are many, principles are few, methods may change but principles never do.
    I agree whole heartedly about his assessment of Patsy Clairmont!
