I've been listening to your program since I was too young to retain anything besides your "I've Got a New Attitude" theme song! My mom was a stay-at-home mom and between listening to you and having her at home, I didn't even realize that moms did anything beside stay at home and raise their children. We all now have your podcast, which I listen to every day.
I am proud to say I am 23 years old, supporting myself, and not shacking up like many of my friends are. When they ask me for advice, they now will ask for my "Dr. Laura" advice, because I quote you frequently, and I give it to them in a straightforward, no-nonsense way. I am excited to get married and have kids, so I can also be a stay-at-home mom and be my kids' mom and my husband's girlfriend.
I have already told my parents I expect to get The Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands as a wedding gift, to which my dad responded that he didn't think I needed it, because of how much I listen to you and apply your wisdom to my life already. I plan to read it anyway. My life has been impacted in such a positive way because of you, and my non-"beautiful," non-snowflake children's lives will be as well.
