December 4, 2023

Listen Now:

In the special segment “Why Is My Kid Crying?,” Laura and Shanna explore the things that have caused their little ones to melt down recently, including unexpected emotional outbursts about TV time, Target trips, telepathy and more. Also, Laura is befuddled when she discovers that her four-year-old has been refusing to participate in his theater class, and Shanna is overwhelmed by her daughters’ aversion to socks and homework. 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.
