Mom and Dad Are Fighting

Shame On You Too

Slate’s parenting podcast debates why parent-shaming will not go away.


Episode Notes

On this episode: Elizabeth, Jamilah, and Zak catch up on their week in parenting—which includes a lunchbox meltdown, a terrible board game, and bribing a kid to verbalize his emotions. Then they talk about parent shaming and share some wild listener submitted stories. Finally, on Slate Plus, they talk about the thing many parents are missing.
