Kanata’s Castle #31: Were Han and Leia “Bad Parents?”

by Kanata's Castle

Becca and Devon are back in the Castle! This time, your hosts are going to tackle that burning question that every Star Wars fan is yearning to know: Were Han and Leia “Bad Parents?”
Yup, they dive-in and discuss the good, the bad, and the ugly of parenthood. So, probably a good idea to find a Jedi Knight and borrow their ‘breather.’ Kanata’s Castle is about to go deep!

Every situation is different. Every family dynamic is different. In turn, every family is different, yes, but yet we are the same. Parents. Parenting. Parenthood. None of it is easy. It doesn’t matter what color your skin is. It doesn’t matter what your orientation is. As parents, we all go through the trials and tribulations of raising our younglings as best as we can.
