This week we’re talking about (cough, cough) sick kids. Just when you think being a parent can’t get more difficult, kids start sneezing in your face and throwing up in your lap. Yet, somehow their sicknesses make us want to hold them closer.
Joining me to break down the topic of sick kids is Gila Pfeffer who has plenty of experience taking care of sick kids (she has four teenagers!). In our conversation, we talk about daycare germs, kids vomiting in public, how sicknesses change as kids get older, why parents have no fear of getting sick and much more. Gila also talks about moving her family from the United States to London and about the differences in health care in both places.
This is also a special episode for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Gila is a breast cancer pre-vivor and survivor. In this episode, Gila talks about her unique story and how it impacted her family. She also shares the advice she gives to other women and families impacted by breast cancer.
About Breaking Down Parenting: A ParentNormal Podcast
Breaking Down Parenting: A ParentNormal Podcast is a show that’s for imperfect parents by imperfect parents. Hosted by humorist and imperfect parent of three Chris Cate, every episode breaks down a topic that causes parents to break down, such as putting kids to bed, potty training, the terrible twos, homework, clothing, discipline, cleaning up, cooking for kids, and so on….
By the end of each topic breakdown, parents will hopefully realize they aren’t alone in their struggles and that the craziness all parents go through is actually quite funny when it’s looked at in the right light. After all, the mission of the show is to help parents laugh when they want to cry.
