This week's episode of Parent Tell focuses on the extremely unequal "balance" (lol, that's just what they want us to think) that almost always exists between the birthing person and their partner when it comes to figuring how how this whole having and raising a child thing is going to work. Kaila spoke with an old friend and new mom, Kisha, about her experiences with suddenly being left to do 99.9999% of the parenting after her son was born, when there had been zero previous indications in her marriage that that's how it was all going to go down.

Kaila and Kisha hone in on where our individual ideas of what parenting and domesticity come from, why we need to potentially flip the script and be the opposite of the domestic role models we had growing up, as well as how these two women themselves are working really hard to do just that.  Because when you know better it's time to do better for ourselves, our loved ones, and especially those kiddos who are watching and learning.
