In this episode, Emily Allen talks with Meredith M. Dangel about her essay, “Brave Enough to Help.” As the mama of a child with autism, Meredith wants other mamas to know how they might be able to encourage and support women who might be dealing with uncomfortable child-related situations in public. Meredith shares some great practical ideas for those who might be unexpected bystanders in such a situation, and encourages moms to find a way to step in with a kind word instead of ignoring the scene.
