I was on the Today Show with Hoda and Jenna Bush Hagar talking about “How parents can relate to kids at any age.”

Here’s the link to the segment: Emily McKhann and The Motherhood on the Today Show.  Please watch!!

We talked about helicopter parenting versus ‘sidle up’ parenting, finding common ground, and “stop, look and listen’, something my daughter’s kindergarten teacher always sang to get the kids’ attention, and a good reminder for us as parents too.

I’d love your thoughts on the conversation if you have a moment!

Here are a few behind-the-scenes photos:
