Dr. Cathy Reimers, Ph.D., psychologist in New Jersey, and co-host Jennifer Russello, parent in New Jersey, discuss how the excitement of Halloween can bring out the worst in parents. Five times out of every seven, Halloween falls on a school night - like it does this year.  Parents are faced with juggling their work schedule with kids Halloween festivities; packing up costumes for school, mid-day school parades & parties, taking kids trick or treating, giving out candy in your neighborhood, monitoring sugar intake, discussing safety, navigating bed-times and suddenly - Mom is a monster! We all want our kids Halloween to be frightful and delightful but let's talk about how to prevent Mom from being the scariest monster of all this year!
