Parenting Perspectives with guests Richard Greenberg and Kristine Carlson Wed May 21st at 12pm EST

Richard Greenberg

Richard Greenberg is a father of four and the author of “Raising Children That Other People Like to be Around”.  A native of Los Angeles, California, Richard graduated from UCLA with a Bachelor’s degree in English in 1976 and immediately went to work as the personal assistant to Art Garfunkel.  Choosing to stay in Los Angeles and marry his childhood sweetheart, Richard became active in the television industry while he and his wife, JoAnn, began building their family.  Three sons and one gorgeous, intelligent, and flawless daughter later, the Greenbergs were regularly asked how they got “such good kids.”  In response, Richard wrote “Raising Children That Other People like to be Around.”  His objective was to offer logical, common-sense guidelines for people creating their own families and to help young parents, especially mothers, understand a father’s point of view.  You can read more of Richard’s parenting tips, tools, and triumphs on his blog,, by following commonsensedad on Twitter, or by liking his Common Sense Dad fanpage on Facebook.

In addition to his writing, Richard is a congenial, down-to-earth expert and lecturer on the subject of parenting.  He has appeared multiple times on national, local, and international  television and radio.  Richard offers an online parenting course at and is a regular contributor to The Huffington Post.
