Andrew, like his mom Sheletta, is a very social teen, so being stuck in the house without friends to talk to is a struggle for him. But he's found some strategies, besides harassing his younger siblings, to cope with the isolation caused by the coronavirus crisis. He offers tips for teens on how to stay sane in an insane world on The Mommy & Me Podcast on SHElettaMakesMeLaugh.com.
Sheletta has a new children's book called Cameron Goes To School, about her daughter's autism journey as she prepares to go off to kindergarten. The six year old joins the Mommy & Me Podcast to talk about what she hopes the world will learn from a book about a little black girl with autism.
On The Mommy & Me Podcast, when Sheletta learned that Andrew had kissed a girl, she was kissing the floor because she fell out. The helicopter mom tried to explain to her son that having a relationship is hard work for an adult to manage emotionally, but her pleading fell on deaf ears because Andrew is in love.
When Andrew's friend ask him if he thought a classmate was attractive, he responded, "She's too fat for me." That friend took their private conversation and posted it word-for-word on social media. Andrew got in trouble and upset that his friend would betray his trust. On The Mommy & Me Podcast, Sheletta used this as a chance to teach her son what a true friend really is, and it ain't a snitch.
Andrew is out sick, so Sheletta called Jason Clopton, from The Teen Whisperer podcast, to fill in. Her secret plan to get Jason Clopton to help her understand why Andrew told his dad, and not her, that he's got a girlfriend backfired. Suffice it to say, Sheletta did NOT like the answers Jason gave her.
Andrew's basketball season came to a screeching halt when he injured his knee during a fluke accident at school. The teen is emotional, to say the least, about not being able to play the game he loves. He and Sheletta try to talk through his anger and come to a place of healing and acceptance on The Mommy & Me Podcast.
Andrew tries to make the case to his mom why he needs more than one pair of shoes to wear to school. While pleading his case to Sheletta, Andrew says most of his friends get five to 10 new pairs of sneakers each year. On The Mommy & Me Podcast, Sheletta suggests he gets new friends cause the ones he got now are out of his league.
After spending at least a hundred thousand dollars on private school tuition for the past 13 years, Sheletta came unglued when she found out that her teenage son Andrew wants to be a rapper. And even worse: one who uses cuss words. She's going to need another dose of nerve pills after this heated episode of The Mommy & Me Podcast.
