How many times did you hear this as a kid when a relative came to visit: “Go give grandma kiss…she came all this way to see us,” or something like that, and you’re thinking, “yuck, grandma smells funny I don’t want to kiss her.” Yet your mom or dad more or less forced you to show affection when you didn’t want to. Are you that kind of parent? We take a look at some of the arguments against forcing kids to show affection. Plus, a conversation with author Sandra Cisneros about her new memoir. And we have another installment of our My Life in Three Songs. And since it’s Friday the 13th, we thought we’d explore some of the reasons why many of us hold on to our superstitions even though our rational mind knows it’s a bunch of malarkey.
