John Rosemond is the nation’s leading parenting expert and provides common-sense advice for raising your children. John is a nationally syndicated columnist, author and public speaker, delivering over 200 presentations annually to parents, teachers and professional groups. His audiences are left feeling empowered, educated and entertained.

A family psychologist by license, John points out to all his audiences that “psychology has caused more problems than it has solved for American parents.” John’s mission is to be a counter-weight to the psychological parenting paradigm that was sold to America in the late 1960s/early 1970s, restore commonsense to the raising of children, and give parents the guidance needed to raise happy, well-mannered children who will, as adults, contribute value to culture and society.

Because I Said So! 3.19.2016


[This episode originally aired 3.19.2016]

  • Let's face it: Children do odd, strange things. They also have random thoughts and random emotions. In this episode, John says that we need to disempower psychology when it comes to the raising of children and stop running to psychologists every time our children do odd, strange things or have seemingly alarming, random thoughts. He contends that because we have been paying so much attention to psychology and its applications to parenting, we take these things too seriously and advises parents to use discernment when talking to children about their feelings.  He points to research that shows that talking to children about their feelings almost inevitably makes the feelings scarier, stranger, and more intense.
