Raising kids in a military household is no easy task, particularly when they take their cues from non-military children. During an interview with David Bredehoft, co-author of Raising Likeable, Responsible, Respectful Children—from Toddlers to Teens—in an Age of Overindulgence, Army Wife Radio host Tara Crooks recalls her own woes arising from just such a scenario when instructing daughter Chloe, 6, to pack her lunch for school.  Chloe’s protest? “Izzy’s mom packs her lunch.” Tara’s response? “Well, good for Izzy’s mom. That's how her family works and this is how our family works. Do you want to eat the school lunch? If not, then you pack your own lunch." And David, a Concordia University Professor of Psychology—who warns that over-indulging little ones can be detrimental—couldn’t agree more. “Good for you for saying that! You're on the right track there,” he tells our host.
