Ep. 242 – Punched by a Preschooler
February 20, 2023
Shanna and Laura air their petty parenting grievances in the special segment “Gripe Water.” They sound off about weird scenes in a popular kids book, well-meaning but aggravating comments that people make to parents, a guilt-trippy Facebook ad and more. Also, Shanna reports on her four-year-old’s first week at her new preschool, and Laura talks about how she handled a moment of anger with her four-year-old. Finally, they share their BFPs and BFNs for the week. Shanna’s kids are 4 and 6 years old, and Laura’s kids are 4 years old and 23 months old.
