Biz and Theresa explore the limits of our power as parents. Kids have pretty big ideas about what we can do and it’s a life lesson learned that we can’t take them to Ancient Egypt to dine with cats. But what about the more realistic needs and wishes we can’t meet, like that must have outfit, guitar lessons, or that birthday gift they really want? How does all this crushing disappointment make us feel? Hint: Not the best. Plus, nature comes to Biz, Theresa has too much on her brain and we talk to clinical psychologist Darcy Lockman about the Myth of Equal Partnership. It’s a doozy of a show.
Follow Dr. Darcy Lockman on Twitter @Darcy_Lockman and on her website Darcylockman.com. Her book All The Rage: Mothers, Fathers, and the Myth of Equal Partnership is available now.
