Ready to brave up your parenting? Reshma sits down with Shannon Watts, a mother of five and founder of Moms Demand Action, for a conversation about the challenges of being a good parent while you're busy fighting for positive change in the world—and how to overcome them. Shannon, who's been called the NRA's worst nightmare, shares why letting go of perfect is so important to making the biggest possible impact, her secret to getting the most relaxing bubble bath, and what the latest research says about how shooter drills are affecting kids across the country.
