Amy Alkon's Advice Goddess Radio: "Nerd Your Way To A Better Life!" with the best brains in therapy and research.
This week's guest is neither a therapist nor a researcher, but I couldn't resist having her on. My guest is my friend and former columnist colleague at the New York Daily News, Lenore Skenazy, who wrote the book Free-Range Kids, Giving Our Children the Freedom We Had Without Going Nuts with Worry -- and started the movement against helicopter parenting.
She's smart as hell and a snappy wit, so it'll be a terrific show. She'll talk about how insanely overprotective parenting has become, why it's become that way, and healthier ways of thinking. And she'll help parents learn how to break free of the push to keep kids strapped into a cushy chair at home, under close watch, until they're 27.
