In this episode, Emily Allen and Lynne Patti discuss two of the essays Lynne shared on the Kindred Mom Blog, one about the pressure to be the perfect mom (and how to escape that trap), and the other about navigating the murky world of technology within a family setting. Lynne talks about the importance of having a proactive approach on this topic. Lynne’s essays are titled, “The Perfect Monster Mom,” and “On Screentime: (Written While My Kids Were On Screens),” and can be found on KindredMom.com.
