Thanks to everyone who supported us in this years Max Fun Drive!

Biz and Theresa fill our own boredom by talking about what to do when our kids are bored. Should we bust that boredom with 10 exciting ways to fill up summer break or just threaten to take their toys away if they are so bored? Both probably will have some sort of effect. The real question is how does it make us feel when we hear those 2 words, “I’m Bored,” from our kids? Plus Biz and Theresa never get bored of saying thank you to our listeners and supporters, and we talk to Shayna Ferm and Tracey Tee of the Pump and Dump Show about their new book Parentally Incorrect: True Tales by Real Moms About the F**cked Up Things Their Kids Have Done.

Find out if the Pump and Dump show is coming to your town (they probably are) by visiting their website. Find them on Instagram @thepumpanddumpshow and on Twitter @thepumpanddump, and on their Facebook page AwestruckTV. Their book Parentally Incorrect. True Tales about the F**ked Up Things Their Kids Have Done is on sale now.

Biz and Theresa explore the art of bragging and decide this is a tough one. How can we teach our kids to have pride in their accomplishments while being mindful of the feelings of others? Instead of slapping the label “bragging” on it and walking away, what if we start with the lesson of being gracious towards others? Crap! That sounds like work! Plus, Biz brags about her garden, Theresa brags about her sick baby, and we get some information and resources about childhood stuttering from philanthropist and educator Jane Fraser.

Head to the Stuttering Foundation of America to find out more information about stuttering, Jane Fraser, and to download some of their awesome FREE resources. You can also follow the Stuttering Foundation on Twitter @stutteringfdn.

One Bad Mother

Biz and Theresa talk about how hard it is to watch our children deal with big disappointments, like missing their first sleepover because they’re sick! Not only do we want to comfort them, it also brings up our own crushing memories… “Mama! Why did you not buy me those Monkees tickets!!! WHY!!!??” The good news is this feels like a parenting situation we can handle. If we survived, it probably means our kids will too (…unless it’s Monkees tickets). Plus, Biz wonders if it’s real and Theresa is in a hell of her own making. Eek! This is not our most uplifting episode! But, we’re getting really good at this.

Don’t hang up yet, you’re just on hold! Biz and Theresa wonder if putting things on hold until [fill in the blank] is a good thing, and if perhaps it's better to just let some things go so that we can return to them when we're ready. Let's hold off on answering that. Plus, Biz is in the moment but not in the zone, Theresa says, "I’ll do it myself!" and we talk to award-winning children's book author and illustrator Airlie Anderson about her new book, Neither, which is a beautiful celebration of diversity and inclusion.

Biz and Theresa explore the saying, "Parenting is the toughest job, but also the most rewarding." What are those rewards and why don't they feel like finding a $20 bill in the couch? Is it that the language of “rewards” is misleading? Is it a long game? Is it that there are times when we are in too deep to see them? It may be all or none of these, but what might help is a trophy that says, “Reward.” I’ll take 20. Plus, Theresa has a one-year-old and Biz tries to adopt a new pet.

Biz and Theresa wonder, “Where do party favors go to die?” The answer? Your house. Kids love them, we hate them, and we admit to fully participating in the madness by buying them and giving them out at our own kids' parties. Maybe giving kids $1 when they leave the party is the cheaper and more environmentally friendly way to go! Plus, Biz lets go of something big, Theresa gives herself the silent treatment, and we talk with comedian and host of NPR’s Ask Me Another, Ophira Eisenberg, about having a baby later in life and letting the truths we set for ourselves be changeable.

Biz and Theresa are live from San Francisco Sketchfest with guest Eliza Skinner and we're talking about swear words! Our bread and butter! I guess maybe it's weird to hear a four-year-old sound like a sailor at the preschool interview? OOPS. Are some words just bad, is it more about how our kids reflect back on us, or is it just important that kids at least understand what they're saying and the effect their words might have on others? Maybe a little of all of the above. Plus, we enjoy some delightful audience genius and fails, and, of course, a collective listen to a mom having a breakdown.

Eliza Skinner is an excellent twitter person. You can watch Drop The Mic on TBS every Tuesday at 10 p.m. And don't forget to check out her awesome new podcast Cool Playlist where she invites a guest on to make a playlist for a specific life event. First episode to launch on January 30th!

Biz and Theresa wonder if there is anything to birth order as a determining factor in our personalities or if it's basically as reliable as astrological horoscopes? Does being the second child mean we shouldn’t leave the house today or make new investments? Yes, yes, it does. Actually, we discover something terrible…birth order may have nothing to do with our children or how we treat our children and the expectations we have…that may be all us! AGHHHHHH!! Plus, Biz returns from the mountains and Theresa plays pretend.

Biz and Theresa wonder why it feels like it’s all or nothing when it comes to getting things — even fun things — done as a parent. Biz thinks we’re trapped between having to commit to being interrupted on the one hand, and being unable to carry out anything (project, work, or personal fun) on the other. Either way, we’re supposed to be "cool with it" because we are "mom." Eek- we may have stumbled on some more resentment here! Plus, Biz’s vacation will solve everything and Theresa is Commander-in-Chief of All That Is Baby!

Do we have shorter fuses and less patience because of the clutter and the never-ending list of chores that weigh us down when we're at home? Or...is there something "Amnityville Horror" going on?

Don’t tell your sister but you are my favorite! Biz and Theresa talk about favoritism in our homes growing up and how we are trying to steer clear of it now that we're parents. We can at least agree that screaming “why can’t you be more like your brother” is probably a bad idea, right? It gets hard when we wrestle with feeling like we have to over-do to make each child feel they are getting enough attention, especially when they have such different needs. Plus Biz is visited by the demon mom spirit, Theresa has a gender rant, and we talk to early childhood development expert and author, Dr. Gloria Walther.

Biz and Theresa share all the things that our kids take forever to do…put on shoes, eat, get out of the car, get into the car, really anything. Should we acknowledge the irony of all the times we say we wish we could slow down or that we wish the world for our kids would slow down while we complain about this? Nope! No time! Hurry up! We can’t teach you how to learn to be bored and to be patient when you are so slow! Sigh. We are getting really good at this? Plus Biz has more cake, Theresa gets ready for an adventure and we talk to Chris Harris author of I’m Just No Good At Rhyming: And Other Nonsense for Mischievous Kids and Immature Grown-ups.

Chris' book of poetry is out now.

Biz and Theresa explore the importance of picture day. Are we team “clean faced/hair brushed” or team “It was picture day?” Who cares the most about it, us or our children? What do we do with those pictures…mail them to relatives, frame them, or dump them in a file drawer? No matter what you do, the real meaning of picture day is to have something to embarrass our children with in 20 years. Plus Biz is forever in blue jeans, Theresa is the sleep president and we talk to Morra Aarons-Mele about her new book Hiding in the Bathroom: An Introvert’s Roadmap to Getting Out There (When You’d Rather Stay Home)

Pick up Morra's new book now and subscribe to her Forbes podcast Hiding in the Bathroom for more of a discussion around redefining success as an introvert.

Biz and Theresa wonder which is harder, having to be the more flexible person in the family with our work and personal needs, or adjusting our attitudes to be happy about it? How do we find the energy to adjust how we feel about it if we are always spending that energy being so freaking flexible!!? Which came first, the bitter chicken or the miserable egg? Maybe just talking it to death will help. Plus the walls are talking to Biz, Theresa made it and we talk to blogger and author Lee Wind about LGBTQ literature for young adults and children.

Dr. Ama Mazama

Biz wonders if we are incapable of letting our children solve their own problems and if this is why our children can’t actually problem solve! Theresa suggests maybe its less about ability and more about personality. What’s worse, stunting our children's development or having to accept they may be totally different than you? Both seem like a reason to hide in the bathroom. Plus Biz gets thumb tacky, Theresa takes cover and we talk to Temple University professor and mother Dr. Ama Mazama about the growing trend and reasoning behind home schooling for African American children.

Check out Dr. Mazama in The Atlantic piece by Jessica Huseman that brought her to our attention and pick up her book The Afrocentric Paradigm to learn more about her field of study.

Biz and Theresa load up our backpacks with unnecessary anxiety! School is great and the teachers are better, so what could be keeping us up at night? Will the teacher be a good fit for our kid? Is this the REAL school supply list? We gotta get kids where? WHEN?! Does it count as bad communication from the school if we don’t read any of it? Should any of this be stressing us out? Theresa rolls with it while Biz lets her sadness for her ever aging children manifest itself into an unhealthy “yes!” Plus Biz has a screamer, Theresa goes to the beach, and we talk to Michael Ian Black about fatherhood, twitter, writing children's books, and Wet Hot American Summer: 10 Years Later (in which he stars), which is streaming now on Netflix, to our endless delight!

Biz and Theresa spend the show convincing ourselves that when our children whine it is a good thing. If we ignore the feeling of wanting to slam our heads into a wall and scream “my ears are bleeding! BLEEDING” and focus instead on the biological and emotional science of why children whine, we might just be successful. Success means hiding in the bathroom, right? Technically you are still in the house. Success! Plus Biz wants to know what’s happening, Theresa accepts her fate and we talk to Jennifer L. Verdolin, Phd about her new book Raised By Animals: The Surprising New Science of Animal Family Dynamics!

Pool splashing, sparklers, being surprised...these aren't phobias or life-threatening but they still bug the crap out of us! So, do we ban them or toughen up? What if we just try to explain rationally to a three-year-old that we'd like them to stop? Yep! That will work! Plus, Biz sees herself in Katy Belle and Theresa returns from the woods!

This week on One Bad Mother, we are excited to share our live show from San Francisco (May 2017) where we talk about bad habits. What makes a bad habit and do we have any control over what habits our kids have? Probably not but that won’t stop Biz from trying to keep her child from becoming the class “booger eater.” Glynn Washington of Snap Judgement joins us and serves as the voice of reason and experience with his parenting perspective with older kids. We need it! Plus live genius and fails!

Note: This week corporal punishment is mentioned in the discussion.

This week on One Bad Mother, Biz and Theresa realize that all that glitters is not gold…it is just glitter and like that shitty tattoo you got from that wild night out that was fun but full of regrets the next morning, it will be with you forever. What makes glitter magical and why, despite knowing its dark side, do we keep letting it back into our house? Maybe, like all awful things, we can turn it into a reminder that we are getting really good at this. Plus, Biz brings Katy Belle to work and Theresa get summer schooled.

Biz and Theresa talk about playing games as children and now, with our own kids. We each have one capable, game-playing-age child as well as another child who seems to turn all game-playing experiences into hurricanes of frustration. Yet, we keep trying! Plus, we're joined by the delightful and insightful Anthonia Akitunde, founder of the website MaterMea.com, to talk about normalizing the experiences of women of color in motherhood.

This week on One Bad Mother, maybe you can’t understand what Biz and Theresa are saying because they bit off more than they can chew. While choking on it, they wonder why this keeps happening. Is it that we don’t see parenting as work so we take on more as if we are starting with a clean plate only to discover that there was a cake hiding under the salad the whole time? Plus Biz would like time to stop, Theresa is in too deep and we talk to returning guest Tresa Edmunds about her new self care venture HavenTree Box.

Biz and Theresa wonder what needs to happen, how much money it would take, how many magic wishes we’d need or who’s permission needs to be given for us to actually commit to self-care. Is 100 magic wishes enough? Maybe the actual self-care we are looking for isn’t a physical act, but instead an internal one. Or maybe we just need to go out for milk…in the Bahamas. Plus Biz is getting the band back together, Theresa can't get the splinter out and we talk to Erin Bried, founder and Editor in Chief of the awesome magazine for girls, Kazoo!

Biz and Theresa are beginning to think we aren’t using the word "selfish" right. Wanting time for yourself so you can rest isn’t the same thing as shoving someone out of the lifeboat. As we find ourselves digging into the idea of self-care more and more on the show, we try to figure out this week why it's hard to allow ourselves our own wants and desires. Plus Biz has an unimportant update, Theresa is getting messages and they're coming from within her bra, and we talk to Brett McKay about his book, The Art of Manliness, which, as it turns out, is helpful to parents and non-parents, regardless of gender!

Colleen O’Grady

Biz and Theresa wonder if there's any benefit to all the fighting going on between our kids besides thinning out the herd. One part of our brain knows to let them learn to work it out, unless it gets violent, but the other part of our brain finds it hard not to step in when we get fed up listening to it. Plus, Biz has a dream and Theresa practices detachment parenting. We talk to author, therapist and mom Colleen O’Grady about raising teen daughters, but our conversation is relevant to so many stages of parenting, it is absolutely something for everyone -- not just parents of teenage girls!

Biz and Theresa wonder if we're putting too much or too little weight on our kids' actual ages. Every time our older kids reach a new age, it seems younger than we imagined it would be, and our younger kids -- no matter how old they get -- always seem little compared to our big kids. When we set limits and expectations based on our kids' ages, it always somehow feels totally arbitrary! Plus, Biz acts like she cares, Theresa solves the formula, and we talk to actresses and moms Kimmy Gatewood and Rebecca Johnson about Glow, the new Netflix series about lady wrestlers.

Nefertiti Austin

Every family has its own way of doing things and, now that our kids are old enough to compare our homes to their friends', suddenly there's a whole list of ways in which we, our kids' parents, ARE MONSTERS. Plus, Biz paves the way for weekend fun and Theresa visits a real forest. And we talk with writer Nefertiti Austin about her experience adopting children as a single woman of color.

In reference to our conversation with Nefertiti, here are some book recommendations from Gwen Glazer of the New York Public Library. These books are for children ages 10+, featuring protagonists who are people of color. Note these are categorized by gender -- the first listed are books featuring boy/male leads and below that are books featuring girl/female leads. As with any book, parents should read first to make sure it is suitable for your child. Thank you, Gwen!

Featuring boy/male leads:
As Brave as You​​ by Jason Reynolds​ (Nefertiti after the show found this as well through her local librarian)
​​The Crossover and ​​Booked by Kwame Alexander (these might skew older​ -- for a mature 10yo only​)
The ​​Cruisers series by Walter Dean Myers
​​Kinda Like Brothers by Coe Booth
​​Bud, Not Buddy by Christopher Paul Curtis​

Featuring girl/female leads:
One Crazy Summer by Rita Williams-Garcia
Flygirl by Sherri L. Smith
Bayou Magic by Jewell Parker Rhodes
The Jumbies series by Tracy Baptiste
The Mighty Miss Malone by Christopher Paul Curtis
Zora and Me by Victoria Bond

One Bad Mother
Guests: 
Bryn Huntpalmer

This week on One Bad Mother, Biz and Theresa ponder the stereotype of mothers….not the ethereal, magical vessel image…its the hunched, broken, shell of a person image. Is it avoidable? Is it too late? Or is there some place in between the deep end and the impossible vision of self put upon perfection? We hope that place has snacks. Plus Biz lives her parenting dream, Theresa gives us a window into her world and we talk to Bryn Huntpalmer of the podcast The Birth Hour.

This week on One Bad Mother, in honor MaxFunDrive, Biz travels to the past to talk to to still pregnant Theresa about how much they should care about how their kid’s express themselves through their clothes. The answer turns out to be “not a lot” but that doesn’t mean it wasn’t a bumpy road to get there and acceptance that the road will go on forever….with more bumps. Plus Corin Tucker joins us to talk about “mom cool,” feminism post kids and the importance of supporting each other.

This week on One Bad Mother, Tempest DuJour joins Biz as co-host to answer the question "What do you mean they don’t want to be your friend baby girl?” What are we supposed to do as parents if our kids feel like they don’t have friends? I mean besides threaten those kids who dare not like our children. That probably qualifies as getting “too involved.” But what is enough involvement and how bitter is that pill to swallow that there really isn’t anything you can do to keep your children from emotional pain? Plus we call Theresa and we announce our first LIVE show in San Francisco!

Biz and Theresa wonder if we're doing it wrong when it comes to responding to poor behavior. Should we be accommodating of difficult behavior when it's obviously just some kind of developmental stage? Or, by letting things slide, are we creating a world of Veruca Salts? Is it okay to just not enlist in some battles? Plus, Biz experiences the power of The Target Shout-Out and Theresa stresses about giving equal attention to her kids.

Biz and Theresa explore how we try to change gears when we're stuck in a funk. “I know I am supposed to be enjoying this moment…why can’t I get out of my funk and enjoy it?” Is it the guilt, is it the need to carry every emotional triumph or difficulty around till we get recognized for it, or do we just need to be nicer to ourselves when a day is turned upside down by a toddler tantrum? It may be some of everything. Plus, Biz has an ant problem, Theresa has bunk beds, and we talk to drag superstar Tempest DuJour about adoption, trusting yourself, and fostering diversity in our homes and communities.

Is it strange that our kids can roll with these changes better than we can? Nope. They don’t rely on a set schedule to organize their lives like we do! Plus, Biz feels all alone, Theresa is still pregnant, and we talk to Janet Stickmon about her essay series To Black Parents Visiting Earth: A Love Letter-Life Guide to Raising Black Children in the 21st Century.

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.

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.

Biz and Theresa wonder who really gets punished when we take away fun things like TV, iPads, toys and special outings? (Short answer: US!) What's so hard about this? Is it just the realization that we now have to fill that time in a different way, or is there something amiss in the way we're doling out punishments in the first place? Plus, Biz gets recognized for her efforts and Theresa gets lazy!

Biz and Theresa talk about the things we do for our kids that we'd otherwise never do. Whether you're an introvert spending Saturday socializing at a playdate, you're someone with a balloon phobia blowing up balloons for your kid's party because she HAD to have balloons, or you're the least crafty person on earth but you wake up one morning in the middle of Michael's with your five-year-old and a cart full of pinata-making materials -- we've all pushed ourselves to do things for the sake of our kids. Do we gain from these experiences or are we losing ourselves in this process? Plus, Biz gets body-technical, Theresa ups her fashion game, and we talk to the delightful Chris Kornelis about his truly very cool new book, Rocking Fatherhood: The Dad-to-Be’s Guide to Staying Cool.

Biz wants a new job, one where she isn’t President of All The Stuff. In any relationship, is it inevitable that one person becomes the boss of a majority of day-to-day stuff? Is it resentment that we can feel over this arrangement, or just fatigue? Regardless, it seems like sometimes we just want someone else to be the boss….BUT, OH NO….can we let go of being President? Maybe we just need to be the President of Venting. Plus, Theresa has a big announcement and we talk to Angela Arsenault, Features Editor at Parent.co, about teens and sex in the digital age.

Biz and Theresa demand to know why our kids don’t like some stuff that ALL OTHER kids seem to like. Not liking pizza or coloring books seems like breaking some sort of child law and it seems particularly criminal when the things they don’t like would make it easier for the parent if they just liked it! Plus Biz is at her breaking point and naming every person in a book or car on the road for her toddler isn’t helping, Theresa has an unfortunate wildlife adventure and Courtney Wyckoff of Momma Strong comes back to talk postpartum peeing and issue us a pelvic floor challenge!

Biz and Theresa wonder if we're overstepping our boundaries when our kids' friends ask us questions about the way the world works or need our help solving a problem.

Either way, comparing this process to a hangover makes it less painful. Plus, we talk with Julie Falatko, author of the delightful children’s book Snappsy the Alligator (Did Not Ask To Be In This Book) about getting work done with four kids and the importance of giving yourself permission to do it.

It takes all our energy to stay calm in the face of the hurricane (and let's get real - plenty of times we don't stay calm, and that takes energy too)!

Biz and Theresa get honest about bribing our kids. It's the thing you're not really supposed to do but it seems like everyone kind of does and -- dare we say -- it maybe kind of sort of...WORKS! Eek! Call the parenting judgment police! But, how far can we go with bribery before it backfires? Plus, Biz hits a major milestone with her toddler and Theresa tries not to feel guilty when she realizes she's having quality time with her second child for the first time in months.

Biz and Theresa try to remember what we thought being an adult was going to be like when we were kids and wonder if we lived up to those expectations. Well, Biz did eat three boxes of fruit roll ups because “she could” so that was something! We also discuss what we may or may not be able to do to help our kids become adults. Surprise! It probably involves work. Plus Biz goes on a field trip, Theresa tries to talk about something nice, and we call Dr. Dan Siegel, co-author of The Whole Brain Child, to talk about how we can help ourselves and our kids by considering how our brains work.

Julia Aziz

Heads up! There are some discussions about miscarriage in this episode, so please be forewarned if that's a trigger for you. Or, maybe NAPTIME is a worse trigger?! We wouldn't blame you if that's the case. Naps or the lack thereof can be a real son-of-a-somethin' and despite a cumulative four kids and nearly twelve years of parenting between us, Biz and Theresa don't necessarily have the answer to the question, "How do I get my kid to take a nap?" Luckily, we get a visit from Julia Aziz. Her book, Lessons of Labor: One Woman's Self-Discovery Through Birth and Motherhood, is a wonderful reminder that we don't have to have all the answers all the time.

Biz and Theresa hash out the possible reasons why Biz can’t stop saying “no” to EVERYTHING her kids want to do, even when there is no good reason for it. “No, you can’t play with that toy that is totally yours and is actually fine for you to play with! Wait, I mean, ok.” Plus, Biz feels cheated by TV again, Theresa survives an epic public temper tantrum, and we ask why so many kids were eating cake in the 50’s?! And, we have an incredibly helpful conversation about talking with our kids about sex and gender with sexuality educator and author Cory Silverberg, whose wonderful new books include What Makes a Baby and Sex Is A Funny Word.

Biz and Theresa try to decide how important OUR style is when it comes to what our kids wear. And does what they wear reflect on the job we're doing as their parents? “I swear my two-year-old really does love vintage! HE picked this out!” When "should" our kids be dressing themselves and what "should" we be doing to help? (If your kid isn't already dressing herself, eh, she probably will once she's in college.) Plus, Biz bears witness, Theresa can't see, and we talk to veterinarian Dr. Katie Gies about how to pick a family dog and how to prepare your pets for a new baby.

Biz and Theresa admit there are some (ok, MANY) times when we behave almost exactly like our toddlers. Shouldn't we have more patience for their shenanigans when the reality is we totally "get" why they're acting out most of the time because we'd like to stomp our feet and throw things, too? Plus, Biz gets through a challenging experience with her kids and Theresa is confused because things seem to go smoothly for a whole f*cking hour! And we're joined by Courtney Wyckoff, creator of MommaStrong.com, an online strength conditioning resource for all phases of motherhood and all fitness levels, and she is so insightful and inspiring that we totally fall in love with her.

Biz and Theresa just want to have a good time this week while simultaneously not talking about being a parent! So, we talk about some remarkably not-kid-related stuff, from karaoke to what we'd do with a million dollars to favorite childhood memories. Don't worry, we can't spend an ENTIRE show avoiding the whole parents-of-young-kids thing. This episode has genius moments and failures, and some honest status updates from life at home, where Biz's family has put her to the test with multiple illnesses and Theresa's two-year-old is dong a great job...being a two-year-old.

Plus, Biz becomes the Big Ketchup house, Theresa becomes an aunt, and we talk to former NCIS agent Heather Ryan about empowering ourselves and our families to stay safe.

Biz and Theresa discuss the ways our kids' appearance and actions do or do not directly reflect on us as their parents. Why do we take credit for certain traits but shrug off other traits as being influenced by others or "just the way they were born"? Is it important for kids to reflect positively on their families or more important for them to be their own people and make their own way? Plus, Biz takes responsibility for her words, Theresa is excited, and we are joined by Helen Ellis, author of the new collection of short stories, American Housewife, and more importantly, Biz’s sister, to talk about not having it all!

Biz and Theresa get crafty and wind up knitting a sweater of self-despair! What was supposed to be a light topic actually leads us into a discussion of our feelings of guilt, jealousy, and inadequacy as moms. Plus, Jessica Shortall joins us to talk about her new book, Work. Pump. Repeat.: The New Mom's Survival Guide To Breastfeeding and Going Back To Work. It is as helpful and awesome as we’d hoped it would be!
