NOW *THIS* IS PARENTING

In chapter 7 of ‘Lessons from Lucy’ you mention some challenging cases where it may be quite difficult to tell the truth, such as when your children ask you if you ever did drugs.  I personally find it best to be completely honest in this kind of situation.  I always say, "Yes, but I was drunk at the time."

STRUMPDATE

Thanks to the nice crowd that came to hear me last night at the Free Library of Philadelphia, and to Melanie the PAWS Philadelphia volunteer who brought Rex the dog. Tonight, if my plane takes off, I’ll be in Los Angeles to do a Live Talks event with my buddy and sometimes co-author Alan Zweibel, who is a very funny guy, and I am not just referring to how he looks. Hope to see you out there.
