As a parent you've probably experienced the judging eyes of others at the playground, in the grocery store and while out to dinner. It makes you feel terrible. So why do we do it? In today's episode we explore how to turn our tendency to judge into compassion and empathy for other parents. Parenting is hard enough, then add the complexity of making your kids "well rounded". Whatever. Fortunately, we have Kristin Schmoke Parenting Coach here to help.

What's your dream? It's not every day you meet someone following their dream, really following their dream and not willing to compromise themselves to realize the dream. Today's spotlight showcases Michael Jedrzejewski, an aspiring screenwriter pursuing his dream in Hollywood. His story starts well before this one as an immigrant from Poland in the 1980's. His family followed their dream to live in the US. He continued his dream to write and be true to himself and his art. The rug was pulled out from under him multiple times and then there was the diagnosis that changed his life. I can't think of a more quintessential American Hollywood Dream story than Michael's. We talk immigration, writing samples, college memories and his life as it is now. In a nutshell, he has a dream, he has integrity, and he has hope.
