30 Minute Mom – How NOT To Raise a Spoiled Child

Join us as we talk to Tracey Jackson, screenwriter of Confessions of a Shopaholic and writer, director, producer, and co-star of Lucky Ducks, a documentary the NY Post described as one where “a mom ships her ‘brat’ to the slums of Mumbai to cure her spoiled behavior.” But the movie is more than that – it is a personal and deeply honest film about raising children in today’s over-privileged society. In this interview, Tracey talks about the mistakes she made in giving her daughter too much too soon, how she tried to rectify that, and how parents can take to keep from spoiling their kids.
