[We're taking turns picking out some favorite episodes to share with you on weeks when vacations disrupt our usual chattiness. Nicole raided our archives for today's full episode (from January 29, 2018) and the speed rounds you'll hear on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. Tomorrow, though, you can listen to a brand-new Round 2.]

00:46 Travels with Catherine: We know you'll be jealous when you hear where Catherine stopped on her 15-hour trip from Wisconsin to Kansas.

06:58 The Buzz About Bouncing Back: "Resilience" is a big buzzword in parenting and education, but what does it even mean? And is there really a way to help every child develop it?

24:10 Speed Round: Pack Your Bags, Kids! We discuss whether our kids can be trusted to pack their own suitcases, and the value of a packing list that comes from an authority figure other than Mom.

33:20 Roundabout Roundup: Dog Shaming (and WeRateDogs, on Twitter and in book form); SocialOomph; and the GroupMe app.

39:32 Shameless Self-Promotion: This very show on PlayerFM's Best Parenting Podcasts; Nicole's book, with a review from Terri; the podcast on Instagram.

Thanks as always to Jon Morin for our fun in-and-out music. If you're reading this somewhere without hyperlinks, come to for the full recap experience.
