wonderful and amazing. glad i'm paying now.
After sampling on itunes I thought this would be a great intro with tips on how to talk with kids. I'm an adopted Aunt who really loves the kids but didn't want to be that person who is always asking boring things like "how was school" etc. The teaser for the show makes it seem like you will learn some of what works and doesn't when talking with kids. Unfortunately, it's really a show about how different people are UNSUCCESSFUL at talking with kids. Part 1 is about two comedians who get a job at a summer kids camp and bomb because they can't come up with "clean" material that is funny to the kids. The 2nd part is about how NOT to tell you kids about the facts of life and the 3rd is about a woman who has let her children run over her to the point she's bought her 16 year old birth control and lets the girl's boyfriend stay overnight --- even renting a hotel room for them! Seriously depressing and unhelpful show. Sorry I spent the money on it. Wouldn't have written a review but bought it based on earlier reviewers comments which I believe are totally incorrect and misleading.
How NOT to relate to kids
And not very amusing nor entertaining. Oh we'll, sometimes you find sand at the bottom of the clam pot.
