Jen Lumanlan

Jen Lumanlan lives in Berkeley with her husband and 4.5-year-old daughter. Upon realizing she had no parenting instinct whatsoever, she went back to school for a Master’s in Psychology and started the Your Parenting Mojo podcast to share research-based information on parenting and child development which has now been downloaded more than half a million times. If you’d like to spend more time outdoors with your child but are intimidated because you ‘don’t know anything about nature,’ check out the interview she recorded with Dr. Scott Sampson (yep, from Dinosaur Train!) about his book How to Raise A Wild Child: it’s packed with super-easy tips to help you get outside!
