Biz and Theresa explore our desire to prove to others that we’re doing enough as parents. Regardless of what we’re going through with our kids, when someone tries to be helpful by saying, “Have you tried...xyz?” it can leave us feeling like all our efforts are invisible. So...that’s a thing! Plus, Biz wonders “Who those people are?,” Theresa has been shocked, and we speak with author Rumaan Alam about his new novel That Kind Of Mother.
You can find more from Rumaan on his website rumaanalam.com, on twitter @rumaan, and as the special projects editor of the Books desk for the New York Times. His latest novel That Kind Of Mother is out now.
