On this week’s episode, Allison returns! Ruth Graham joins to discuss her 2014 essay on the culture of parental complaint, “Why Do Parents Make Parenting Sound So God-Awful?”—and to revisit the issue now that she’s a parent. Then the panel answers a question from a listener whose mother-in-law never visits her grandchildren. Plus: parenting triumphs and fails, recommendations, and more. And on Slate Plus this week, Allison asks Gabe and Carvell for help, and they do their best.
