    5:00 – TIME: The Case Against Over-Parenting

    The most recent edition of TIME Magazine has a cover story entitled: “The case against over-parenting.” It begins – “The insanity crept up on us slowly; we just wanted what was best for our kids. We bought macrobiotic cupcakes and hypoallergenic socks, hired tutors to correct a 5-year-old's "pencil-holding deficiency," hooked up broadband connections in the tree house but took down the swing set after the second skinned knee.” We talk to Dr. Ray Guarendi about “over-parenting.”

    5:40 – NY Times Op-Ed: “Latin Mass Appeal”

It was entitled “Latin Mass Appeal” and lamented the decline of liturgy since Vatican II. We analyze the article and the decision of the NY Times to publish it with Fr. John Zuhlsdorf.
