Description

Parenting is hard, but it's even harder when you feel alone and have only the sounds of Cocomelon to keep you company. Betches Media’s Childproof is a parenting chat show for when you’re craving adult conversation. As parents to three kids each, co-hosts Gwenna Laithland and Tori Phantom have been there. They know that sometimes our kids are the ones on the verge of a tantrum, and that sometimes it’s us. Childproof attempts to figure out the dos, don’ts, and f*ck its of modern parenthood. From yelling at your kids (we’ve all done it) to finding a sleep schedule that doesn’t ruin your life, Gwenna and Tori share the challenges they’ve faced and the lessons they’ve learned, and are eager to share their experiences through a mix of one-on-one conversations, guest appearances, and input from listeners revealing their own parenting secrets. Clearly, we could use some help from everyone and their mother.

I agree with this. I use totes. we have 6 kids & 2 adults in a tiny home. dressers are not a thing. Laundry is hard enough & someone one time said hey I use a tote system & I've never looked back each person has a tote for their clothes & a laundry basket above the washer and dryer for their clean clothes. I fill them up all week and on Sundays I hand them to the kids and they dump them back in the tote & give them back. it's amazing.
