Relationships 101 – Having a Chronically Ill Sibling, and Overscheduled Kids

Dr. Beth (drbetherickson.com) first spoke with Heather Cariou (sixtyfiverosesthebook.com), author of Sixty-Five Roses: A Sister’s Memoir, about the challenges of growing up with both a sister and a brother with Cystic Fibrosis. Heather clearly had to grow up too fast for her own good. Then she spoke with R.T. (Willie) Willard who retired after teaching in middle school for 35 years about this question: Are Our Kids Overscheduled Today? Dr. Beth offered some guidelines for parents to consider in making decisions about kids’ extracurricular activities.
