On this week’s episode, Rebecca, Carvell, and Gabe talk to Suzanne Bouffard, author of The Most Important Year: Pre-Kindergarten and the Future of Our Children, then answer a question from a listener whose stepdaughter no longer wants to make the trip to her father’s house on weekends. Plus: parenting triumphs and fails, recommendations, and more. And on Slate Plus this week, Slate designer Holly Allen shares a horrifying near-fail involving a 9-year-old boy and a box of teeth.
- Rebecca recommends getting a dog.
- Carvell recommends giving a kid a hug and a kiss on the forehead when that kid annoys you.
- Gabe recommends Owl Babies by Martin Waddell.
