PTAN Episode #10: Can’t Parents Just Get a Break?
School Rules Have Made Parenting Really Hard…
We’re all just trying to get by, aren’t we?
Most of us – whether we’re parents of younger kids, older kids, or observers of kids in general, would agree that trying to keep it together while raising a family is a tough gig.

In this episode of the Parenting Then and Now podcast, we tackle these and other questions with mother of three, writer and blogger, Rebecca Cuneo Keenan. Rebecca has a refreshing, comical and realistic perspective on parenthood and raising kids in today’s rapidly-changing world. A child of the ’80’s, she watched the world change to where its’ become a place where many of what used to be standard practices regarding child-rearing, are now viewed with suspicion. Rebecca challenges this new normal and has a lively and humourous chat with me in the process. Listen to the full episode below.
