One Bad Mother Episode 139: Are Our Kids A Reflection Of Us? plus guest Helen Ellis

Show: 
One Bad Mother
Guests: 
Helen Ellis

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!
