Why wouldn’t you wait and do this later?” But I wanna be a part of changing the world that they are growing up in, not the world that they grew up in.” Find Kelly on most major social media platforms, such as Twitter and TikTok, and check out her campaign website.

When You Know Better, You Do Better (with Dr. Traci Baxley and Kelly Krout)

The Suburban Women Problem

On today’s episode, Rachel Vindman, Amanda Weinstein, and special guest host Malynda Hale talk about social justice parenting. They discuss how you first have to acknowledge your own inherent biases and your discomfort before you can have meaningful conversations with your kids about social justice. We hear more about Malynda’s inspiring tweet thread about interracial marriage in response to Senator Mike Braun’s comments at Judge Jackson’s hearings, and everyone expresses their disbelief and outrage over right wing hypocrisy regarding Ginni Thomas.Then Kelly Krout joins us to talk about parenting, fostering kids, politics, and more. Kelly has become a sensation on TikTok for her relatable videos about running for office in Arkansas. She’s also written children's books about the foster care system, proving once again just how important it is for kids to have books that reflect their lived experiences. Kelly is funny, energetic, wise, and an all-around delight.After that, Rachel sits down with Dr. Traci Baxley to talk about her book, Social Justice Parenting: How To Raise Compassionate, Empathetic, Justice-Minded Kids in an Unjust World. Dr. Baxley and Rachel chat about what exactly social justice parenting is, why sheltering our kids is the wrong approach, and how the only way to really get social justice parenting wrong is to never even start. Finally, Rachel, Amanda and Malynda raise a glass to family, to finding time for an at-home date night, and to meeting Dr. Fauci in this week’s “Toast to Joy.”If you’re  tired of extremists banning books, you should check out Red Wine and Blue’s virtual Read-In on Thursday April 7. The event will be hosted by Stella Parton (that’s right, Dolly Parton's sister!) and feature some amazing authors of banned books, including past pod guests Lesléa Newman and Brad Meltzer.
