Science now tells us that if we react to our children’s “failures” with compassion instead of criticism, our kids will have a greater likelihood of succeeding. We discuss these ideas and the book Self Compassion by Kristin Neff.

We also discuss the different ways men and women measure acts of love.  The good news for the guys is that we use a  point system, the bad news is we haven’t been keeping score the right way.

We announce the beginning of our bi-monthly installment of ZPR called, “Conversations of People We Love”. Our first show will debut on Friday, October 18th – we will talk with Heather Criswell- author of the book “How To Raise a Happy Child”

We also include a few entries into our tournament of bad.

We would love to hear any comments from the show by sending us an email @
