Parenting with Cheryl Erwin

A note from KUNR General Manager David Stipech: On August 7, Cheryl Erwin signed off from KUNR during Morning Edition with her last Parenting segment (at least for now). We're grateful for Cheryl's generous gift of her time to write and record her insights aired weekly on KUNR for the better part of two decades. Writing and producing radio commentaries takes a lot more time than people might think! Cheryl faithfully has given our listeners useful tips and perspectives, not just for parents raising children, but also for grandparents, relatives, friends—and all of us as adults who are always learning. We're proud of Cheryl's work right here in our community and also globally, having a growing, positive impact with her own practice, in local schools and across the planet. We're fortunate to have Cheryl among our extended KUNR family and as a parenting expert and resource. And we are very glad to continue hosting Cheryl's archive of segments and wealth of wisdom on KUNR's website. Thank you, Cheryl, and keep up the great work! David and the KUNR Staff & Listeners
