Call in to speak with the host
Join host Kate Hennessy and author Richard Melnick, author of Parents Who Don't Do Dishes and other Life Recipes, part memoir, part parenting book and full-on treatise about living life fully and raising kids who do the same. At the age of 40, author Richard Melnick, then the father of three and five-year-old boys, was diagnosed with cancer. Suddenly, he faced new fears, first hand: “Who would father my sons?”“Would they miss me?”“Would they forget about me?” “How would my wife and sons manage financially?” The permutations of painful outcomes were beyond his grasp.The resulting book is an antidote to helicopter parenting and tiger moms. Written in Melnick’s scrappy, heartfelt style, Parents Who Don’t Dishes is an entertaining and easy-to-read book that dives into some of life’s deepest topics with surprising ease.
