On today’s episode Wendy & Terry interview Sonnet & Veronica, two friends & new moms who have created a podcast together called Not Your Mother’s Podcast. Their show includes authentic conversations & offer insights & solutions into the unspoken world of parenthood … basically stuff people don’t usually talk about when raising kids, but things that are on everybody’s hearts & minds!

Three “unspokens” of parenthood that Wendy, Terry, Sonnet & Veronica discussed were:

  1. Gender roles in parenting
    • The importance of honest communication with your spouse about roles, responsibilities & running a family together
    • Being a great role model to your children of what a balanced home looks like
    • Equalizing & respecting all sides of the family workload – each spouse has their own journey
    • Getting rid of the “scorecard” mentality between spouses
  2. Giving space to your partner to be their own parent
    • Asking for help from your spouse before overwhelm set in & then allow your spouse to do things in their own way
    • Letting go of control so that responsibilities around the home can be be shared without critique or judgement
    • Focusing on figuring parenthood out together with your spouse by keeping the lines of communication open & connected
  3. The new generation of men who are involved in parenting
    • Valuing & empowering both spouses equally, remembering that parenthood is a partnership
    • Celebrating men who step up to the plate & embrace their role as present, involved “rad dads”
    • We live in a society with changing roles that should be applauded & supported – investing in our family is key
