Parenting ingenuity is an endlessly renewable resource! In Episode 152, Asha interviews Hillary Frank, creator of The Longest Shortest Time podcast and author of Weird Parenting Wins: Bathtub Dining, Family Screams, and other Hacks from the Parenting Trenches. Asha and Hillary talk about the pervasive feeling of failure that can accompany parenting, the Internet’s ability to create parenting community, Hillary and Asha’s favorite parent hacks, and more.
