"Weird Parenting Wins: Bathtub Dining, Family Screams, and Other Hacks from the Parenting Trenches" by Hillary Frank.

Parents universally know that there are moments in raising a child when you get desperate. You don’t know what to do and you just start grasping at straws — anything that will work.

For example, The Show's Lauren Gilger found out that singing “Shake it Off” by Taylor Swift in the car will always — guaranteed — stop her son from crying.

These are what Hillary Frank calls "weird parenting wins." Frank is the creator of the popular parenting podcast "The Longest Shortest Time" and her new book is called "Weird Parenting Wins: Bathtub Dining, Family Screams, and Other Hacks from the Parenting Trenches."

In it, she has gathered parenting advice, not from experts or parenting gurus, but from parents themselves — and it can sometimes get really weird.

The Show spoke with Hillary Frank about the new book and began with one of her favorite parenting wins in the collection.
