We discuss the newly revised version of  “Stop Teaching Our Kids To Kill” a book written by Lt. Dave Grossman and Gloria DeGateano, Founder and CEO of the Parent Coaching Institute. Originally published in 1999, the book is updated and includes even more indisputable research that demonstrates the affects of violence on the child and adolescent brain.

We also talk about the “Ignore No More” app created by a mom who wanted her son to respond to her texts/calls, and also Cathy’s blog titled , Want Change, Then Rethink“.

We also discuss why mini-breakdowns are the key to a healthy marriage (or any other relationship!).
