New episode: While we have historically viewed parenting as a mother’s job, couples having children now are moving towards more of a co-parenting model. Perhaps one of the biggest challenges to raising children in this day and age is the conversation around sex and consent. Maybe your parents called it the “birds and the bees” or maybe you didn’t receive that talk at all. In this episode, we asked three dads about their own childhoods and the ways in which they hope to tackle this difficult, but incredibly important conversation.
