Washing Dishes on an Infomercial Edition

On this week’s episode: Dan, Carvell, and Rebecca interview Darcy Lockman, author of All the Rage: Mothers, Fathers and the Myth of Equal Partnership, about her article in the New York Times, “What ‘Good’ Dads Get Away With,” and we answer a listener question about what to do about a mean teenager. And as usual, we share our triumphs and fails and offer up some recommendations. On Slate Plus, Rebecca explains why she hates Mother’s Day.

Dan recommends the movie, Being John Malkovich.

Rebecca recommends coloring books for me, such as Coloring Book for Me.

Carvell recommends watching things that your kids love.
