One Bad Mother
Guests: 
Nefertiti Austin

Every family has its own way of doing things and, now that our kids are old enough to compare our homes to their friends', suddenly there's a whole list of ways in which we, our kids' parents, ARE MONSTERS. Plus, Biz paves the way for weekend fun and Theresa visits a real forest. And we talk with writer Nefertiti Austin about her experience adopting children as a single woman of color.

In reference to our conversation with Nefertiti, here are some book recommendations from Gwen Glazer of the New York Public Library. These books are for children ages 10+, featuring protagonists who are people of color. Note these are categorized by gender -- the first listed are books featuring boy/male leads and below that are books featuring girl/female leads. As with any book, parents should read first to make sure it is suitable for your child. Thank you, Gwen!

Featuring boy/male leads:
As Brave as You​​ by Jason Reynolds​ (Nefertiti after the show found this as well through her local librarian)
​​The Crossover and ​​Booked by Kwame Alexander (these might skew older​ -- for a mature 10yo only​)
The ​​Cruisers series by Walter Dean Myers
​​Kinda Like Brothers by Coe Booth
​​Bud, Not Buddy by Christopher Paul Curtis​

Featuring girl/female leads:
One Crazy Summer by Rita Williams-Garcia
Flygirl by Sherri L. Smith
Bayou Magic by Jewell Parker Rhodes
The Jumbies series by Tracy Baptiste
The Mighty Miss Malone by Christopher Paul Curtis
Zora and Me by Victoria Bond

Biz and Theresa try to figure out why we can be so mean to ourselves. Maybe it's because we're jerks? HA HA HA. [Tears.] Plus, Biz can’t have chickens, Theresa is DONE with solo-parenting after ten days with Jesse out of the country, and we talk with Chuck Bryant, one of the hosts of the Stuff You Should Know podcast, about adoption and the stuff he hopes his child will know. Also, we announce the launch of our parenting merit badges project! Wooooo!
