One Bad Mother, Episode 316: Parenting with Chronic Pain, Plus NYTimes Parenting Editor Jessica Grose

Ep. 315: When I Grow Up, I’m Going To Be A Self!

Biz and Theresa pick up where we left off on last week’s show and explore the sensation of “playing self” instead of being a self. Is the book on my nightstand going to be read or is it a prop to create the illusion of self care? What about that gym membership? Does it really count as self care if we can never go? We put things in calendars, we tell our partners and family it is important and everyone agrees. Then our self care is the first thing to go when something comes up. Why is this so incredibly hard? Plus Biz finds the pen is mightier than the sword and Theresa cuts it back. Check out Theresa's new book!ItFeels Good To Be Yourselfis available nowwherever books are sold.

Ep. 314: I Feel Like I Work Here, But I Don’t Feel Like I Live Here. Plus, Elizabeth Gilbert!

Biz and Theresa ponder the growing sensation that it feels like we work here but it doesn’t feel like we live here. “Here” meaning any state of existence where we can stop thinking about everything and everyone’s needs but our own. Oh yeah, it's one of those shows. Plus, Biz reads aloud, Theresa receives a pleasant surprise, and we talk to Elizabeth Gilbert about her new book,City of Girls, and about the impossible expectations we place on mothers.

Ep. 313: Revisiting Sleep. Do You Have Enough Now?

Biz and Theresa revisit sleep. Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz…huh?…..We’re awake! But are we rested? HA HA HA! How has sleep changed now that our kids are older and we have more kids? Even though it is no longer like the early days of "having an infant" lack of sleep, sleep is still important. Can we ever get enough or is every wake up like pulling back the pebble that releases the flood? Plus Biz is reminded that kid parties make her feel bad and Theresa takes her kids to a conference.

Ep. 311: Am I a Vending Machine? Plus Gender-Inclusive Sex Ed with Lisa Kenney

Biz and Theresa are back together again and wonder why we feel like vending machines. Maybe it's because we spend all day being the giver and taker-away of all good things. A child will relentlessly ask for stuff and we have to say "no" so many times a day, then occasionally we say "yes" because we're tired of saying "no!" Then saying "yes" opens many new terrible doors (When! Now? Now? Now?) and the "yes" just feeds this fire. It perpetuates the idea that we are the providers and they should keep constantly asking for things because sometimes we'll say "yes." And now the machine has eaten my dollar! GIVE ME MY NUTTER BUTTERS! Plus Biz shares some science, Theresa is all signed up for camp and we welcome back Lisa Kenney of Gender Spectrum to talk about the importance of incorporating gender inclusive materials into schools’ existing puberty and health education curricula. To learn more about Gender Spectrum, go togenderspectrum.org. You can find their Principles for Gender-Inclusi...

Ep. 308: No News Is Good News! Plus Trans and Queer Artist Noah Grigni

Biz and Theresa explore the pros and cons of our kids sharing good news with each other. “I know you got a goody bag at the party but how about you don’t tell your brother?” “I am so proud of you for your hard work on your project. You deserved the prize you got. Don’t tell your brother!” How do we find the balance of celebrating good news with our kids while avoiding the jealousy and greed that often follow? Plus Biz tells it like it is, Theresa isn’t going to pack a snack and we talk to trans and queer artist Noah Grigni, illustrator of Theresa’s new bookIt Feels Good To Be Yourself.
