Episode 5: Masha Rumer

Emily interviews Masha Rumer, author of “Parenting with an Accent: How Immigrants Honor Their Heritage, Navigate Setbacks, and Chart New Paths For Their Children.” In our chat, Masha talks about how immigrant parents get to have twice the guilt about feeding their kids dinosaur-shaped chicken nuggets, why her kids have multiple pairs of slippers, and the one holiday from her childhood she doesn’t celebrate anymore.

In our interview, Masha also gives a the book “Babies Don’t Make Small Talk, So Why Should I?” by Julie Vick. You can read my July 2021 interview with Julie here.
