This week on One Bad Mother, while Theresa is out on family leave, Biz is joined by her husband Stefan Lawrence to talk about the language of love. Or maybe its the language of Swedish and the love part comes from staying married while one parent speaks only English and the other only Swedish to the kids. Does it get frustrating? Does it take patience? Does it take commitment? Yes…and Stefan finds it challenging too. Plus Stefan Hotdogs the intro and Biz wants to was on down the road that takes her away from the school talent show.

Biz and Theresa talk candy! Is there such a thing as too much candy and really, for whom are we asking? Between school celebrations, holidays, and parties, there seems to be a never-ending flow of candy into our lives. Do we try to control the candy or just use candy to control our kids? If it gets us out the door quickly, we’ll choose the latter! Plus, we talk about dinner time and picky eaters with the very enjoyable team from the Spilled Milk podcast, Molly Wizenberg and Matthew Amster-Burton.

One Bad Mother

Biz and Theresa wonder if we're doing it wrong when it comes to responding to poor behavior. Should we be accommodating of difficult behavior when it's obviously just some kind of developmental stage? Or, by letting things slide, are we creating a world of Veruca Salts? Is it okay to just not enlist in some battles? Plus, Biz experiences the power of The Target Shout-Out and Theresa stresses about giving equal attention to her kids.
