On this week’s episode, Rebecca, Jamilah and Dan answer listener questions from a mom who wants to know if it really makes a difference whether you yell at your kids and another mom who wants to make sure she doesn’t overshare her mental health issues with her kid. As usual, we share our triumphs and fails and offer up some recommendations. For Slate Plus, the hosts talk kid-approved scary movies. Sign up for Slate Plus here.


Rebecca recommends having fall-themed actives all fall long.

Jamilah recommends the recently released, The Addams Family movie.

Dan recommends visiting Crab Island.
