Ep. 199: Do You Like Me?, plus Kiera Butler, Senior Editor at Mother Jones

April 06, 2017

This week on One Bad Mother, Biz and Theresa wonder why stepping foot into elementary school can churn up our own personal anxiety about making friends as adults with other parents. Is it all in our minds or should we just hang out behind the cafeteria and start smoking? Plus Biz gives up the bottle, Theresa takes up the bottle and Kiera Butler, a senior editor at Mother Jones joins to talk about the silence surrounding birth related injuries.

Ep. 204: Don’t Talk To Your Mother That Way!

May 11, 2017

In honor of Mother’s Day, Biz and Theresa wonder whether we have inadvertently allowed ourselves to become doormats! When we hear our partners tell our kids, "Don't talk to your mother that way," why are we surprised? It's nice to know someone has our backs, but...maybe we should also have our own backs! How do we practice patience while also standing up to our kids when they cross the line? How do we stand up to ourselves when we treat ourselves badly? Plus, Biz spends money on garbage and Theresa would like to stop having kids now! Thank you to all our listeners who support the show as monthly members of MaximumFun.org.

Ep. 268: The Things We’ll Do To Get Them To Do What We Want Them To Do...Wait, What?

August 23, 2018

Biz and Theresa realize maybe we have never left “the forest” and that the forest has been tricking us this whole time into believing it's a nice place! We look at the sometimes insane and always exhausting techniques that we implement in order to get our kids to do things. As we jump though hoops everyday to get our kids to function, we can't help but wonder, "Is this just my life now?" and “Is it ever going to get better?” Well shit, maybe it won’t. Also on this happy show, Biz has a worst first and Theresa doesn’t do mornings. Check out our book! You're Doing A Great Job!: 100 Ways You're Winning at Parenting!

Ep 289: Mom Hair Detangled

January 24, 2019

Biz and Theresa try to define “mom hair.” Simple? Practical? Low maintenance? Inevitable disappointment when it doesn’t make us look like we don’t have kids? We can agree that calling it “mom hair” is just another way to insult moms. Plus Biz makes a discovery and Theresa is getting really good at this…still.

This week on One Bad Mother, in honor of the #MaxFunDrive, Theresa is BACK, with Baby Curtis, and we talk about the miracle of childbirth. The third times the charm! Plus we are joined by Jancee Dunn, to talk about her new book which works through the issues many couples have after a baby shows up in their life.
