August 8, 2022
In part two of their interview with parenting expert and consultant Gia Gambaro Blount, Shanna and Laura get answers to questions about sharing toys, talking to kids about nudity and handling toddler’s cute aggression toward babies and pets. Gia imparts some wonderful parenting advice about asking critical questions, fostering collaboration and more! Also, Shanna checks in on her recent trip back home to Arizona, and Laura discusses why the “lasagna method” of bed-making came in very handy this week. Finally, they share their BFPs and BFNs for the week. Shanna’s kids are 3.5 and 6 years old, and Laura’s kids are 3.5 years old and 17 months old.
