We aren’t sure we’re saying the right things here. But after the events in Charleston earlier this month, we’re sure about one thing: silence isn’t an option. In Episode 9, Meagan and Sarah discuss race and racism, talking with kids about differences, and some of the reasons that, according to research, white parents avoid talking about race with their children.
Camping with kids. You’re either doing it already… or you’re not. And if you’re not, is it because it seems intimidating? And a little, um, complicated? If so, let this be the summer you give it a try! As part of our campaign with Kimberly-Clark (more on that, below), we’re talking all about getting kids out into nature this summer – including camping! Meagan’s an expert and Sarah’s a newbie, so between them you’ll have lots to learn (and probably laugh at).
Episode 7 is all about being “done” (or not) having babies. How did we know we were done? Do we ever get over that urge to snuggle a newborn? What happens when time isn’t on your side or you and your spouse disagree on growing the family? And, to answer a specific question from listener Jacquie, what are the logistical and psychological differences between having two kids and having three?
Why does it feel like summer actually creates MORE work for busy moms? When kids are home from school, the snack-requests never end and laundry multiplies overnight. Episode 6 is all about “summer short-cuts” – little ways Meagan and Sarah cheat their way to an easier summer.
Should kids really write thank-you notes for every gift? What are the non-negotiable table manners in Meagan’s and Sarah’s houses? How do we teach everyday manners and common courtesy to kids who are still learning to sit still and use a fork? We discuss these questions and more in Episode 5! Join us for a fun discussion about teaching manners – and, as usual, you can expect us to get REAL about how things actually look in our families.
It’s warm out! But we have so much to DO… How can busy families balance the end-of-school madness with the desire to sit on the front porch and enjoy the sunshine? In Episode 4, Meagan and Sarah discuss simple ways to celebrate the season and do a little venting about the end-of-year parenting slump.
