  • Using the internet for social networking, Facebook, MySpace - who are your kids talking to and becoming friends with, what every parent needs to know, and how to tell if they are becoming addicted. Plus video games and the amount of time your kids spend playing with them - what's normal and what's not?
  • Autism and spectrum disorders and the controversy over vaccines - is there a connection? What are the latest therapies?
  • ADHD - can your child grow out of it? Do medications work? How to diagnose and treat learning disabilities.
  • OCD and anxiety disorders - when fear becomes anxiety and how both parents and kids can deal with this debilitating issue.
  • Homosexuality and coming out - when does your child know, how do they tell you and what should you say? Guests include Doctor Radio host Dr. Virginia Sadock, renowned sex therapist, and a young man who shares his experiences growing up gay. What's it like being a gay child being raised by straight parents, and what happens when a straight child is raised by a gay couple?
