This week, Alison and Greg discuss different types of depression and various treatments for it, including a series of self-help books. They consider the importance of interacting with their children and how kids can remind of them of the boundless energy they’ve lost since becoming parents. Alison explores her fears of potentially facing induced labor, and Greg recounts dating a woman with a sex addiction who rode her bike through the rain just to show up soaking wet at his door. Now the future of stand-up comedy is….. virtual reality? Also, there’s a back and forth about masturbation somewhere in there.

Modern parents may not want to hear this, but helicopter parenting works. At least that’s an argument of an article that Greg and Alison read on this week’s episode of Childish! Also, a caller feels a little guilty about wanting to raise her kids in a town away from family (but it DOES have a great sex scene - inside joke, you’ll get it), and Alison’s high of the week is her rejoicing what could only be deemed a “pre-pregnancy bowel movement.” Though listening to her story might be Greg’s low.

While waiting, she and Greg chat about an article that reveals that parents DO have a favorite kid (and the kids totally know), read a snippet of a thoughtful essay by Greg’s son Owen about the Cinderella Complex, and listen to a caller’s doubts about whether or not she should be reading parenting books if she feels she trusts her own instincts with her child. Also - Greg drops the bomb that he used to do gymnastics as a kid. Alison’s mind is BLOWN.

IT HAPPENED AGAIN. Alison has another pregnancy orgasm - this time involving a United States founding father - so Greg tries to unpack all of THAT. Both Greg and Alison discuss YOUR answers about the perfect age to have kids (spoiler: there doesn’t seem to be a consensus - go figure), and send some advice to a concerned dad who calls in when his 5-year-old daughter’s friend starts wanting to play doctor. Plus! Elliot just turned 2, he and Greg are best friends now, and Alison laments pissing herself while recording an episode of Alison Rosen Is Your New Best Friend.

Episode 13: Trapped In A Happy Marriage
01:06:19

Whether it’s living with your parents after college (and seducing someone selling magazines, if you’re Greg) or figuring out why marriages are much more likely to dissolve nowadays, Alison and Greg are talking all about the family unit on this week’s episode of Childish! Also - I guess there’s a measles outbreak (so that’s another fun thing to worry about) and a listener phones in to get advice after her husband changes his mind about being open to having kids.

Episode 12: YOU DON’T KNOW ALL THE RULES ABOUT MUFFINS
01:11:52

DANGER. Lots to fear in this world. Or at least that's what a preachy gynecologist told Alison when she was 16. But in this week’s episode of Childish, both she and Greg muse on how to not be TOO protective of your kids, discussing some of the current dangers of raising kids (like the US Surgeon General warning of the risks of youth e-cigarette use and giving your kids too much added sugar). Plus! Greg helps his son plan a graduation trip to Europe, Alison tells her husband, Daniel to get a manicure, and they give advice to a dad whose teenage son is having a tough time with anxiety.
