#194 – Sportscasting

We open the show continuing to talk about refereeing sibling disputes and disputes among young children in general. We cover the latest in parenting advice: sportscasting (also referred to mediation or narrating). Caitlin doesn’t like parenting books and Laura comes up with a good hack on how to incorporate this type of book into her routine. We talk a bit about Caitlin’s favorite ASMR videos, which eat into her reading. Laura’s #idontgotthis revolves around vegetables and Caitlin’s is about…poop.
