On this week’s episode, Rebecca, Carvell, and Gabe’s triumph/fail segment leads to a discussion of the N-word: what happened when Rebecca’s son heard a classmate using it and how Carvell handles it with his kids. Then, a discussion of media filtering. What movies, books, songs do the panelists fight over with their kids?
And on Slate Plus this week, Slate writer Rebecca Onion is back, with an update—and a shocking twist!—to the saga of the hippie nanny in the woods.
- Rebecca recommends The Explosive Child: A New Approach for Understanding and Parenting Easily Frustrated, Chronically Inflexible Children by Ross W. Greene.
- Gabe recommends A Treasury of 8 Books by Tomi Ungerer.
- Carvell recommends the video “history of the entire world, i guess”
