#207 We could be so much worse at this parenting thing! Modern parents are making themselves crazy trying to do everything right, and it's time we give ourselves a break. I've enlisted the help of JENNIFER TRAIG, author of ACT NATURAL: A Cultural History of Misadventures in Parenting  (January 8, 2019), to give us some historical perspective on this raising kids gig. In our "How Not To" parent conversation, we discuss Traig's hilarious research findings detailing the worst choices parents have made throughout history, her own family's genius "Bad Choices Day", and the perks of sibling rivalry. Listen up! xx Ellie Knaus
