Guest 1: Michelle Nicholasen and Barbara O’Neal, authors of I Brake for Meltdowns.
Topic: How to handle your 2-5-year old’s most exasperating behavior.
Issues: when your child won’t play with others, hug or kiss a relative, can’t share, or constantly interrupts; kids who can’t (or won’t) sleep by themselves; picky eaters; surviving family travel, and more.
Guest 2: Hara Estroff Marano, author of A Nation of Wimps.
Topic: The high cost of invasive parenting.
Issues: Today’s parents are getting too involved in their children’s lives—doing their homework, selling their Girl Scout cookies, filling out their college applications, solving their roommate problems, and more; the terrible consequences of parents’ good intentions.
