My Kids Think I'm Cool, BUT...

I’m going to be honest, I was one of THOSE people (before having kids)  that said “how hard can parenting be”, 

‘’I’m gonna be the COOL mom And let my kids do everything they want’’ 

or I was that person that said… 

“Cooome Ooon... give your kid THE DAMN CANDY or iPad so they can shut up”. 

Does that sound familiar to any of you listeners?


I was wrong in every aspect of what parenting is about. You won’t believe the internal dialogue that happens in my head NOW

I’m constantly asking myself: Is it okay to let them watch TV for another hour? Are they eating too many sweets? Or am I a bad mom for picking up my kids late from daycare?

And the list goes on and on. 


We all know parenting is hard but what happens when you add in a different country, a new language and foreign culture into the craziness of being a mom or a dad? 

So that being said… Welcome to "My Kids think I’m cool, but..." podcast. I’m your host, Jackie, an American-Filipina mom living in Denmark with my 2 beautiful kids, a wife to my wonderful Danish husband, an Entrepreneur, and world traveller.  

I was born in Manila, Philippines but grew up in Los Angeles, California. And now I’m living in Denmark. 

Its definitely been an adventure and I am excited to share it with you.

In this podcast, I will be talking about the fun yet chaotic life of being a parent in a foreign country. I will be discussing my own life and talking to some wonderful parents going through the same crazy experience. 

WE will be talking about the highs and lows of living abroad, the journey of making new friends, building a new career path and learning a new language all while raising kids and trying not to lose our shit

So sit back, relax get a cup of coffee (or a glass of wine- whatever floats your boat;)) and join the conversation with me.
