One Bad Mother Episode 164: Who Are We to Other People's Kids? Plus Aya de Leon on Talking With Our Kids About Race and Activism

Show: 
One Bad Mother
Guests: 
Aya de Leon

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. Are we "parenting" other people's kids, or is this just what they mean when they say, "It takes a village!" Plus, Biz is inconsistent in her feminist teachings, Theresa's kids are taking "dress up" to a new level, and we talk with author, activist, UC Berkeley faculty, and mom Aya de Leon, about how to talk with our young kids about racism, inequality, and activism.
