Biz and Theresa discuss our kids’ ability to exploit “Mama’s weaknesses.” “Just one more game?” “You love donuts, can we get donuts?” “Let’s do a movie night!” Sure, it sounds fun, but there are limits that need to be reinforced and bedtimes that need to be kept! We can’t say yes every time…can we? Plus, the lies come easy for Biz, Theresa is full of crisp mountain air, and we talk to Lauren Schneider of Our House Grief Support Center about handling grief as parents.
