Join parenting writers Terri Mauro, Catherine Holecko, and Nicole Eredics for a daily look at the things parents are talking about, complaining about, and obsessing about right now.
What Moms of Teens Need
After reading "Moms of Teens Need These 14 Gifts to Make Their Lives Easier," [https://grownandflown.com/gifts-moms-of-teens/] we talked about the gifts we wanted and needed when our kids entered adolescence. Also mentioned: The episode where we complained about our family members' shopping habits [https://www.parentingroundaboutpodcast.com/blog/are-you-really-going-to-buy-that].
Speed-Round Sunday: Board Games of Our Youth
Here are all the games we could name from our childhood; we promise we didn't make them up. Not even "Barbie Dream Date."
Second-Listen Saturday: The Parenting We Got
Were our parents good parents? We have no complaints. Well, maybe a few tiny ones. Mentioned: Transforming the Difficult Child by Howard Glasser; The Child with Special Needs by Stanley Greenspan; The No-Cry Sleep Solution by Elizabeth Pantley; psychologist Adele Brodkin.
Roundabout Roundup: Lazarus Naturals, Canva, Let’s Make Art
On this week’s Roundabout Roundup: Nicole has found a calming CBD oil from Lazarus Naturals [https://www.lazarusnaturals.com/] that works for her needy, anxious dog. Terri's experimenting with iOS 14 aesthetics on Canva [https://www.canva.com/search/templates?q=ios]. And Catherine recommends painting kits from Let's Make Art [https://www.letsmakeart.com/].
Motivating Online Learners
We obsess about how to motivate kids to do schoolwork in these strange times, when so many traditional incentives are unavailable to teachers, students, and parents.
Paperwork and Printer Peeves
On today's Round 3, we complain about paperwork: Filling it out, getting it where it needs to go, and especially, printing it out in the first place. Why are we still using paper at all anymore?

Best Advice with Friends!!
Thanks to these four ladies, my commute is fun. I love how they share their thoughts about parenting and aren't afraid to get into the reality of life. It's like having coffee with a group of great friends! They keep it relavant, fun, and real. This is the only podcast I listen to daily.
I like listening in on their conversations.
