As a parent of children who a parents, we discuss how to find that balance between nagging and leaving your kids alone to let the get their own parenting experience. Matt talks with Dr. Nancy Buck of Peaceful Parenting Inc., a developmental psychologist and mother of twin sons. She says the sitution is more complicated than past generations as the economy has led more young families to live with "grandpa and grandma" as new parents start out in their careers. It's easy to fall back into a "back in high school" role which puts stress on everyone involved. She says everyone needs to sit down on a regular basis and set clear boundaries.
