The Mental Load: Being The Default Parent

View descriptionShare

When it comes to raising little kids, we know the workload never stops, but when you're the default parent it can feel beyond overwhelming.

This episode we're talking about the toll being the default parent can take, and we'll be joined by Jayde Couldwell who shares with us all the ways she manages being the default parent to her three kids, and her best advice to those who are juggling it all.

Plus, Tegan's nails and fails.
