Today on the show I’m talking to Hannah Olavarria & Kelty Luber, twins, mothers and feminist co-hosts of the podcast and parenting resource Upbringing. We talk about how patriarchy shows up in parenting, how we can respect our children as individuals while maintaining boundaries and why parenting is a political act. Plus I get super vulnerable and share my biggest parenting challenge.
