Guest:   Dr. Jack Westman, Professor Emeritus of Psychiatry, University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health and author, PARENT POWER

Dr. Westman's central theme is his new book, Parent Power, is that the unpaid career of parenthood is more important for the health of our nation's economy than paid jobs. The facts are:

(1) Without parenthood, we won't have citizens;

(2) Without competent parents, we won't have competent citizens and workers, and

(3) Without competent citizens and workers, our economy won't prosper.

Dr. Westman describes how juvenile ageism permeates our society, and we are neglecting the critical task of ensuring that all newborn babies have competent parents. He suggests a path to successful parenting by implementing a meaningful Parenthood Pledge and a process to achieve parenting excellence.
