From toddlers to teenagers, "Will They Ever Leave?" is a fearless look at parenting from best-selling author Harry H. Harrison, Jr. Do you make things too easy for your child? Are you leading them towards a life of helplessness and anxiety? As Harry says, you're not raising a child, you're raising an adult.

Finally the dads get to speak up! You'll never be mom, and you don't have the "power of the boob," but dads are an important part of the puzzle. Harry, Zach, and new dad Josh Hart discuss balancing work and family, where you can pick up the slack, and why you're not friends with your kids.

The results are in, and guess what? Turns out maybe Facebook doesn't make us all as happy as we might think. And it's not just an adult thing- our kids are pretty bummed out too! But with all the videos and the memes and the challenges, what's got us feeling so blue? Harry sits down with Social Media mom Lulu Amin and father of two Cash Riley Jr. to find out how much we should be using social media, whether or not our kids should use it, and most importantly, how much we should police them for it.
Episode 13: Developing Grit In Your Kids with Sarah Crilley06/02/2018 Duration: 35min
It's simple: kids don't like doing homework. And to be fair, parents don't exactly like working from home either. But what if there's a bigger lesson to be learned outside of your child's weekly classroom lesson? That's the topic as Harry invites DFW mom Sarah Crilley back into the studio to talk about her recent transition into being a homework-enforcing mom, why it's so difficult to force your children to do their homework, and why you shouldn't ever give them a break.
Episode 12: Cellphone Hijacking Your Teen's Brain? with Leigh Richardson30/01/2018 Duration: 34min
11 Teens die every day from texting and driving. It's a stark statistic. One that would certainly imply that maybe we spend too little time looking at the world around us and too much time looking at our screens. That's why Harry invited Leigh Richardson of the Brain Performance Center on to the show to talk about Cell Phone Addiction. Is it an actual addiction? How it can affect you (and your child's) brain? And what we can do to stop it?

What do sports do for kids? When should kids get involved in sports? What sport should your child play? When it comes to sports, there's a lot of questions parents need to ask, and sometimes the answers can be a little different than what they might expect. That's why Harry invited former Dallas Cowboys Offensive Lineman Cory Proctor into the studio to talk about his experiences in and out of the NFL, his journey from the little leagues to one of the biggest fields in the world, and the things he learned along the way.
