Another Radio Day! Parents Rule with Pat

I'm doing a radio show this afternoon on topics from my latest parenting book, The Preschooler Problem Solver (Peachtree, 2009). I'll post the announcement for the show below, which you can listen to on the radio, the internet or by podcast. Pat Montgomery, the host and a parenting expert herself, and I will cover lots of interesting topics, including how to handle oppositional kids, coping with meltdowns, talking to kids about fun topics like sex or family finances, how to help your child make and keep friends, and of course, that perennial favorite, how to get your kid to quit picking his nose at the supermarket. Should be a good hour - please join us or send Pat your questions!

In case you didn't get an email from me about the show, here's the official announcement from Pat:

It is about time someone wrote a book about preschoolers and the myriad of issues their parents face. My guest this week has done it for us and she is willing to tell all she knows. At least all that will fit into the hour long show!

Carol Baicker-McKee PhD is trained in child and family psychology, as well as being a mom of three. Her book, The Preschooler Problem Solver: Tackling Tough and Tricky Transitions with Your Two to Five Year Old, is terrific. She has so many wonderful ideas and insights from all her experience that she shares in this book. And, it is a fun and interesting read!

We are going to discuss:

The defiant toddler

Nose picking

Planning for the new baby

Toilet training

And much more.

You are not going to want to miss this show!

Dr. McKee,

I was so glad to listen in today to your show with Pat M. in Sandy Springs, GA. I was on her show a while ago.

You did a great job and I was especially appreciative of the practice comments about use of language. As a children's literacy consultant (I want to look into some of your books!), I can appreciate the importance of using language and modeling that use of language when problem solving with children. If you'd be interested in me passing your name along to our North Alabama Child Care Conference for the future, I'd be happy to do so. You can find a way to contact me through my website at
