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! 4.02.2016


[This episode originally aired 4.02.2016]

  • Why don't kids play outside anymore? Today's child is more often than not micromanaged and overscheduled from morning until night, and the traditional idea of childhood is rapidly disappearing in America as a result. In this episode, John contends that nearly 100% of the after school activities that your children are involved in will be meaningless and irrelevant to anything they are doing when they are 30 years old. He says to let children be children again, the way they were in a not-so-long time here in America.  
  • John spends the second segment discussing the current trend of parents talking to their children about their feelings. He cautions parents to use discernment when talking to their children about their feelings lest they give validity to the often irrational thoughts, feelings, and fears of a child.
