On this week’s episode: Elizabeth, Dan, and Jamilah discuss how we should be talking to our kids about Simone Biles’ decision to withdraw from the Olympic Games.
Then they answer a question from a listener who is wondering how to deal with their bad babysitter. The problem is, the babysitter is grandma.
In Slate Plus: Is it a faux pas to request no gifts at a child’s birthday party? Or is it OK?
Elizabeth recommends Draw Your World, a sketch book for kids (or adults!) that helps familiarize them with world maps.
Dan recommends the Cat Video Festival, now playing in theaters around the country.
Jamilah recommends quarantine, whether you’re sick or not.
