On this week’s episode, Rebecca, Carvell, and Gabe answer a question from a mom whose son has been invited to sleep over at his girlfriend’s house, and another who’s sick of getting texts from other parents asking for favors at all hours. Plus: parenting triumphs and fails, recommendations, and more. And on Slate Plus this week, Carvell talks about watching his daughter sneak into adolescence.
- Rebecca recommends crafting with the kids using discount items from big-box stores.
- Carvell recommends Pride: The Story of Harvey Milk and the Rainbow Flag.
- Gabe recommends Spotify Family.
