Among the many important themes that Jo Scott-Coe explores in Teacher at Point Blank explores is the connection between mothering and parenting that is often made (or assumed). In her latest podcast on mothering and not-mothering, Jo asks if there is room in our language for words beyond “childless” and “childfree” and interviews Lindsey Frandsen, founder of Thinking Moms, an organization in Riverside, California.
