While we’re enjoying a little time off for summer, we’re updating some of our greatest hits Spawned episodes you might have missed —  and one of our favorites is this fantastic chat with Dr. Catherine Pearlman, author of Ignore It!: How Selectively Looking the Other Way Can Decrease Behavioral Problems and Increase Parenting Satisfaction.

Wait..really? Looking the other way? Isn’t that like…EVERYTHING parents have been taught not to do?

You can imagine that we learned a ton from Catherine in this discussion, and we think you will too.

Take a listen right here, right now:


You can also listen on iTunes where you can subscribe to Spawned with Kristen + Liz so you never miss an episode. (That’s a big hint by the way…we’d love it if you’d subscribe to Spawned!)
