This week Carol sits down with Petrushka Bazin Larsen to discuss the benefits of having a strong and supportive community, especially as a new parent. Petrushka is the co-founder of a Harlem-based family ice cream shop, an arts educator, life coach, parenting advisor and the mom of three young children. In 2018 she founded a mom’s group aimed at helping new moms navigate the first few months with their babies. Carol and Petrushka offer lessons from their parent group experiences, and Petrushka shares helpful parenting tools, some of which she learned from being raised by a single mother and her mom’s community of friends. This lively and advice-filled conversation is the perfect reminder that as parents, we are stronger together.
