Biz and Theresa talk about how it feels when our kids express their feelings or needs in an unkind manner. “I hate forks!” “AHHHH! I put the shirt on before underpants!” “My day is ruined! You are ruining my day!” Helping our kids navigate their emotions and teaching them to speak their needs kindly is important, but also tiring. When you add to it the emotional pummeling of being yelled at by a four-year-old, Biz and Theresa wonder how we can ever get space to regulate our own feelings. Plus, Biz says goodbye to Steve, Theresa has a pet peeve, and we talk to author Tim J. Myers about fatherhood.
