Sometimes, it can feel like it’s a parent’s job to embarrass their kids. Other times, a parent’s actual job is what their children feel ashamed of. Either way, there are still things to learn from our parents’ choices.

In this episode of the StoryCorps podcast, we’ll hear from three kids — Charlotte “Charlie” Marboe, Muhammad Faridi, and Patrick Haggerty — and find out what they learned from their parents’ jobs.
