July 14 -Be Your Own Best Advocate



This week's show highlights:

  • Children advocating for themselves
  • Stress-free discipline
  • Poetic parenting


Kimberly Guilfoyle, author of Making the Case: How to Be Your Own Best Advocate and STAR OF FOX NEWS CHANNEL'S "THE FIVE"

After an eleven-year-old Kimberly Guilfoyle lost her mother to leukemia, her dad wanted her to become as resilient and self-empowered as she could be. He wisely taught her to build a solid case for the things she wanted. Creating a strong logical argument was the best way to ensure she could always meet her needs. 

That childhood lesson led her to become the fearless advocate and quick-thinking spitfire she is today. In Making the Case, Guilfoyle interweaves stories and anecdotes from her life and career with practical advice that can help you win arguments, get what you want, help others along the way, and come out ahead in any situation.

Peter L. Stavinoha, PH.D., is a dad and directs the pediatric neuropsychology service at the Center for Pediatric Psychiatry at Children's Medical Center of Dallas, and is also a Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center.

Brian Wohlmuth is the author of Psychoetry, a poetic book about parenting. He is a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist who has accumulated 25+ years of experience working as a private practitioner. His areas of competence include the treatment of individuals, couples, childhood/adolescent issues, and those family adjustment problems that tend to accompany them.

So pull up a chair, shake up a cocktail, and kick up your heels while you tune in to the refreshingly real talk about what it takes to be a functional - and fun - parent in today's wild world of raising kids.
