Show Info

Imagine a world where Lisa Lampanelli, Chelsea Handler, and June Cleaver created a test tube love child.

That love child would grow up to be none other than Parent Nation's Tara Kennedy-Kline! Irreverent, traditional, unconventional, and envelope-pushing, Tara's the host of the internet's top talk radio show featuring real talk for real parents, shaken AND stirred up with a twist.

Parent Nation, this ain't your mama's parenting show. But it can be a place to 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.

Each and every week, Tara tackles all the latest hot button and pop culture issues facing parents and kids. She also dishes up filter-free conversations with her fellow mom friends (you know you want to listen), and introduces you to guests whose take on all things parenting just might make you spit out your drink - or raise a glass in their honor.

Tara is a highly sought after parenting advocate in the media. You can find out more about her on her website.

Watch Tara's take on hot button parenting issues here.
