Ep 29 - Bluey: Realistic Kids, Idealized Parents
Join us as we dive into Bluey, the super popular children's television show from Australia. Bluey superfan Cassandra Hedelius explains why she loves this show's realistic portrayal of the special brand of humor that comes with raising kids. And BYU-Idaho education professor Ben Pacini tells us how he uses the show to teach his students about educational psychology. We talk about the positive and negative aspects of the educational and parenting philosophies inherent in the show. Finally, we ask the question everyone is asking: does Bandit make us all look like bad parents?
