Parenting & Education • 3 hrs. • Abridged • © 1999

The TV actress and health book author uses her considerable charm to make a classic pitch about parenting--that children become more competent when we don't overindulge them or try to make them comfortable all the time. She says that closeness is necessary but that it can do harm if it lowers our expectations of our children. Don't let your children bully you into protecting them; let them discover the world on their own and grow from the experience. Henner is a warm and balanced speaker, and the advice is illustrated so well that you'll want to listen again. T.W. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC/JAN 01]
