Coping, cajoling, conceding or just standing your ground could all be invoked over the course of an hour. How you respond can either make or break your day. On Relationships Matter, we will peel the onion, helping you to understand your interactions with others so that you can create meaningful communications with the people in your life.  Join Dr. Annie Abram and expert guests for a deeper understanding of your relationships, how to make them better and most importantly how to make them matter.

CDD (Compassionate Deficit Disorder) is one of the many disorders coined by Dr. Diane Levin to describe the effects of children spending time in front of a screen, whether it be a computer, TV, iPad, mobile phone, Xbox or other electronic device. Professor Levin has been studying this troubling problem for 30 years with little support from those with the authority and resources to join her cause, not to mention corporate America and the Media who have a huge economic investment in selling electronic devices and toys (with or without screens) to young children.

Dr. Levin will help us make sense of how a "Remote Controlled Childhood" (title of Professor Levin's latest book) is putting the healthy development of our young people at risk.
