Mom and Dad Are Fighting

Jesus, Take the Wheel! Edition

Slate’s parenting podcast helps a dad who can’t believe his kid doesn’t want to learn how to drive.


Episode Notes

On this week’s episode, Rebecca, Jamilah, and Dan answer listener questions from a mom who wants to better deal with her kid’s gender identity and a dad who is insisting his kid learn to drive. As usual, we share our triumphs and fails and offer up some recommendations. For Slate Plus, the hosts answer a bonus listener question: How many extracurriculars are too many extracurriculars?
