HomeTowne TV host and Central Presbyterian Church pastor Noelle Kirchner sat down with NYT bestselling parenting author, Dr. Leonard Sax to discuss his newest book, The Collapse of Parenting.  Dr. Sax appeared at HomeTowne TV (HTTV) in mid-April for Noelle’s latest episode of her parenting series, Chaos to Calm.

As a parent, most of us want the best for our children, and with so much pressure and pitfalls along the way, knowing how to keep your children safe and out of trouble is top of mind. On this episode, Noelle and Dr. Sax dive into factors that can contribute to trouble such as: rising anxiety, depression, obesity, medication, and dropout rates.  While there is much to worry about as a parent, Dr. Sax’s insight offers hope that each of these effects can be statistically traced back to diluted parental authority and help is within your reach.  His inspiring message provides a lifeline how parents can take deliberative action to counter culture's most pervasive trends, and safeguard the future success for those they love and care about.  Show times for the interview are: Mon, Wed, Fri @ 3:00pm, Tues, Thur @ 9:30am, and Sun @ 7 & 9:30pm.
