Ep. 281 – No Bad Kids, No Bad Words
November 20, 2023
Laura hits a parenting milestone this week when she hears her child use a swear word for the first time and must think on her feet to appropriately handle the situation, and Shanna attends parent-teacher conferences for her 4- and 7-year-olds and is caught off guard by the information she receives. Also, in the special segment “Throwback,” Laura tells a dramatic and hilarious tale of vacationing on the Jersey Shore with her family as a teenager. Finally, they share their BFPs and BFNs for the week. Shanna’s kids are 4.5 and 7.5 years old, and Laura’s kids are 4.5 years old and 2.5 years old.
