Modern Manners for Moms and Dads

Evie Granville & Sarah Davis Guide You Through Some of Parenting’s Stickiest Situations

Modern Manners


When I settled on the name of the podcast, it was a play on the fact that kids don’t come with an instruction manual — hence, “The Child Repair Guide.”

My guests today are experts in helping parents navigate the complexity and comedy of raising kids. Evie Granville and Sarah Davis are moms, educators, and best friends whose podcast, Best Friend Banter, covers all the things that two best friends would talk about. Their focus is to guide parents through all the questions about parenting etiquette and manners that arise every day. What do you do when your child makes a mess in public? Does your child have to write thank you cards for birthday presents? What to say when your toddler says something embarrassing to a stranger? Through their podcast, blog, and upcoming book, Sarah and Evie are your go-to resource for all these questions and more.
