10.4.10: Today's Show

Today on "The Lisa D Show" at noon MST on KHRO 1150 AM we'll interview Representative Joe Pickett about the community-wide literacy project "Book-in-a-Bag". Info: Local volunteers and community leaders will read to 5,000 first grader in their classrooms and speak them about the importance of sharing.

Then we'll move on to an interview with author and editor Hara Estroff Marano. A previous guest on this show, Marano penned the book “A Nation of Wimps: The High Cost of Invasive Parenting” where she attempts to ward parents off raising wimping, weak, whiny kids.

Our interview today will focus on Tyler Clementi's suicide after he was "outed" on the Internet kissing another man in his dorm room. Marano will discuss the aspects of Clementi's suicide that parents can learn from. How do you protect your children against bullying and how do you raise children who have the ability to fend off criticism from peers.
