Were the "good old days" really so good? Was parenting easier back in the day or is that just an illusion? What about being a kid? Was it better then...or now? That's what I'm on a mission to find out in my new podcast, Parenting Then and Now. I've raised kids in four different decades: 80's, 90's, 00's and the 10's and boy, have things changed. Join me on this long strange trip, won't you?
Episode 28 - Not Like Mother, Not Like Daughter
As the only child of famous feminist writer Erica Jong, Molly-Jong Fast grew up quickly. Life in New York as a kid in the 80’s was interesting, to say the least. Being an only child who was largely surrounded by adults made her experience of being a kid very different from that of her own three children. On this episode of the podcast, Molly talks about her childhood, growing up in New York in the 80’s and what she’s learned along the way.
