Mary Katharine joins the podcast to discuss how the COVID-19 pandemic has affected kids. We cover the mask debate, including how many countries in Europe have chosen NOT to mask their kids. We also discuss the strange trend of asking children to do the heavy lifting of protecting adults — should kids be forced to be resilient? Last, Mary Katharine shares her insight on balancing a career, husband, three kids, and a dog. Can women really have it all?
