On this week’s episode, Slate Culture Gabfest panelist Dana Stevens joins Carvell and Gabe to answer a question from a mom whose ex-husband is being a lousy father to their daughter, and another from an aunt who is disconcerted by her niece’s relentless self-criticism on the tennis court. Plus: parenting triumphs and fails, recommendations, and more. And on Slate Plus this week, Dana recommends her favorite movies to watch with your kids.
