Biz and Theresa explore all the ways in which transitions from crib to big-kid bed can make us crazy. From spending all evening by your child's bed making sure they don't get up to super-nanny-style walking your kid back to bed 10,000 times a night to just plain keeping that crib around long past its welcome, there are dozens of ways to handle toddler bedtime shenanigans and we have yet to meet the parent that finds any of it relaxing. Plus, Biz wonders if all kids go through a "rude" phase, Theresa continues to re-learn that she can't leave her kids alone for five seconds, and we get some advice on personal finance from the lovely Helaine Olen, author, Slate columnist, and contributor to The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and more.

One Bad Mother Ep. 172: Milestones

Watch your step! Biz and Theresa are talking about milestones this week. From those developmental ones like walking and talking to the more emotional ones like getting a big-kid bed or the first day of school, we explore the ways in which milestones can make us feel stressed, relieved, judgmental, and worried -- sometimes all at once! Plus, Biz does not want Ellis’s popcorn and Theresa has a dirty mouth.

Judge John Hodgman Episode 230: It May or May Not Take a Village

| 5 comments

As promised to donors during our annual pledge drive earlier this year, we present our "Switcheroo" week episode! Hosts Biz Ellis and Theresa Thorn of the One Bad Mother podcast jump in to adjudicate a parenting-related dispute this week. You'll find Judge Hodgman guest hosting this week's RISK! podcast.

All will return to normal next week but in the meantime, enjoy!

Judge Biz Ellis presides with Bailiff Theresa Thorn: should a couple with a baby seek out other young parents? Or are their old (non-parent) friends sufficient?

Michelle Hefflin named this week's case via the Judge John Hodgman Facebook page. Thanks, Michelle!

If you want to be part of a nicer place on the internet, like Judge John Hodgman on Facebook or follow us on Twitter @Hodgman, Bailiff Jesse @JesseThorn.

You'll find One Bad Mother's new Kickstarter for parenting merit badges here!
