Parent Footprint with Dr. Dan
About This Show
The Parent Footprint Podcast with Dr. Dan Peters aims to build a community of parents who are inspired to raise healthy, confident, and self-aware children who are engaged in life and contribute positively to the world. The show’s guiding principle is that raising healthy children starts with a parent's self examination of the experiences and beliefs that influence their parenting, and that helping children reach their own potential begins with a parent’s aspiration - and ability - to reach their own. Dynamic, passionate, and inspiring, Dr. Dan and his guests will discuss diverse and timely parenting topics and each episode teach listeners how to sculpt their best and most authentic “Parent Footprint."

The Homework Wars With Greg Pincus - Ep.33
Dr. Dan welcomes author Greg Pincus (www.gregpincus.com) to the podcast today to talk about the dreaded topic of homework! Most parents (and students) have experience with “The Homework Wars” and today Greg talks about his experience, his research, and his solutions for how parents can deal with this never-ending battle. Greg Pincus is a novelist, poet, screenwriter, blogger, speaker, and social media consultant. He and his work have been featured in the New York Times, the Washington Post and blogs and websites all around the globe. His latest novel, The Homework Strike, grew from a childhood fascination with oddball laws sparked by a book he ordered from a Scholastic Book Club flyer -- making his own childhood dream come true when Scholastic published the book! Listeners will love Greg’s anecdotes (especially the one about a long-ago law ruling homework illegal in California!) and the discussion of the novel’s protagonist Gregory. If you have ever cheered for an underdog or stood up for what is right, then today’s podcast will make you want to grab the book and start reading. Dr. Dan lets us all know that parents have to do what is right for their own children -- including when it involves homework. This life lesson ties in directly to Greg’s very entertaining Parent Footprint moment -- one listeners will appreciate and remember whenever they cross a street in the future!
