Ep 25: Slow Your Roll, Helicopter Parents

We talk about helicopter college parents and the culture of checking up on your kids eleventy billion times a school year.

We read about over-involved college parents in the fake New York Post (kidding– I just like to call all major publications fake), and you can read it here.

Ep 24: Sleep in Your Own Damn Bed

We talk about dealing with tragic news and kids, sleeping in separate beds (yes– that’s a thing), and, as always, the POTY and WTFPOTY of the week.

We talked about this Parent’s Magazine article and the NBC sleeping essay.

Ep 23: Battle of the Sexes

We talk about the gender divide when it comes to emotional labor in the home. With minimal shouting!

We both loved Gemma Hartley’s “Women’s Aren’t Nags– We’re Just Fed Up” essay in Harper’s Bazaar.  When we tried to talk about it, though, the exact struggle she wrote about in the essay came to the fore.

Coincidentally, Sarah wrote about an egalitarian household the the Madison Moms Blog this month.  You can read it here.
