Just in time for Thanksgiving, Bespoke Parenting Hour host Julie Gunlock and IWF policy director Hadley Heath discuss TURKEY and all the other nagging cooking questions you might have before the big holiday. Julie and Hadley also talk about Hadley’s oped “Not Your Mother’s Feminism” and what new Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett means to conservative women in America.

 

On this week’s Bespoke Parenting Hour, host Julie Gunlock talks to writer (and coolest aunt on the planet!) Melanie Notkin, an expert on the emerging demographic of childless, often single women, which she wrote about in her memoir, Otherhood: Modern Women Finding a New Kind of Happiness.

 

American Enterprise Institute Scholar and IWF Senior Fellow Naoimi Schaeffer Riley’s book “Be the Parent: Stop Banning Seesaws and Start Banning Snapchat” addresses the need for better parental control over screens and screen time.

How can you be an authority when school authorities are telling kids that there are virtually no limits to screen time?

 

Cato’s Chelsea Follett recently wrote an article about her baby’s near death during delivery and how modern medicine saved her her child. We’ll discuss that, the pressure on women to have “natural” births, the misinformation out there for new moms, and what it’s like to be a new mom in 2020.

 

Inez and Jarrett Stepman both focus on on educational trends in the United States. They will discuss how history is being taught in our nation’s schools and how increasingly, teachers see themselves as activists. How has this affected history instruction in the United States and how does the 1619 Project fit into this issue?
