P-Units Ep. 3: Farmer's Markets & Meeting Imperfection With Compassion
This week the panel discusses the public shaming of a family after their small child made his way into an exhibit at the Cincinatti Zoo, which resulted in a gorilla being shot dead to protect the boy. Also discussed: how to deal with kids who can't (or won't) sleep easily at bedtime, and how to make the most out of farmer's markets this summer, tune in!
On our panel this week: Stephen Haas is a parent of a 4 and a 6 year old in Champaign-Urbana who works for a museum part time and takes care of his kids as well. Nancy Weichert is the mom of a 5 year old and she works part time at the UIS library. Anna Fermin is a musician with two boys, one of which she home-schools. The other goes to a public school in Chicago, where they live.
