    Beware of Short Cuts

    I hate to see anyone, but especially caring parents, preyed upon by unscrupulous advertisers. I got ads for two products making some really bold promises to turn difficult parenting challenges into a breeze. I share these in this episode, the promises these companies make, why they are not legitimate and how to accomplish these two goals with actionable steps that are based in solid child development research.

    When to Step in and When to Support from the Sidelines

    A mom wants to know how to help her son fix his bully situation. Should she/dad step in? Or is there a way to empower her son to handle it on his own and let them know he won't be a victim? It's often hard to know when we are overstepping and taking away an opportunity for our child to handle situations for themselves and when it's a good idea to step in and guide in a bigger way. I give my feedback on this situation, and talk about bullying on a deeper level, how to talk to kids about it and lessons we can all learn when our kids are faced with some unfortunate life challenges.
