This Jewish Mom Shares Her Secrets to Raising Extremely Successful Children

call your mother

Esther Wojcicki is a unicorn: Her three grown daughters are Susan Wojcicki, the CEO of YouTube, Janet Wojcicki, a University of California San Francisco pediatrics professor, and Anne Wojcicki, the CEO of the genetic testing company 23andMe.

How did Esther do it, you wonder? Well, she’ll tell you on the latest episode of Call Your Mother (which Esther calls a “great podcast,” FYI). Jordana and Shannon chat with Esther about her new book, How To Raise Successful People: Simple Lessons for Radical Results, and her unlikely strategies to encourage child independence (like leaving your 8-year-old granddaughters at Target alone!).

Not to be bested by Shannon’s tale of her dead bunny, Jordana discusses disposing of bodies and being an unwilling participant in a Fishpocalypse. And Gram comes in to talk about how you decide whether or not to keep a kid home from school.
