Podcast #17: Leonard Sax and the Badger Brush

Will and Chris go solo on this one, reviewing the salient points from Leonard Sax’s new book “The Collapse of Parenting: How We Hurt Our Kids When We Treat Them Like Grown-ups”. If you’ve read his previous books, “Boys Adrift” or “Girls on the Edge”, you know that Dr. Sax has strong yet informed opinions on parenting. We discuss how findings in his new book may apply to how we parent…which hopefully helps you as you parent. How does the badger brush fit in with this topic? Not at all! We open with a conversation of importance to all men – shaving. Will waxes on what he’s learned from a recent encounter with a second rate badger brush (used to lather up fine shaving cream), and his hopes and dreams for a Father’s Day gift from his new favorite store, The Art of Shaving.
