Show #46: Quirky Kids: Conversation with Dr. Perri Klass, Part 2

Dr. Perri Klass teaches both Pediatrics and Journalism at New York University. She is the author, along with Dr. Eileen Costello of Quirky Kids: Understanding Your Child That Doesn't Fit In.
I spoke with Dr. Klass about a wide range of subjects, from what makes a quirky kid different from others. In this second part of our interview, we talk more about the family effects of Quirky Kids, Medication for Quirky kids, Competitive parenting, and Dr. Klass's program, Reach out and Read, that provides books to children at well child visits to the pediatrician.

Listener emails and voicemails are rolling in! Thanks to Hilary, Kristine, and Carolyn for their emails! I'll announce the Winners of our Book Contest after March 15!
