Even if your kids are largely healthy, families can wind up navigating a lot of medical, dental, behavioral, and educational care. Families of children who are medically complex, or have other special needs, see the degree of difficulty raised a lot.
Hence “advanced parenting.” Dr. Kelly Fradin is a pediatrician, and a parent who has experienced these issues professionally and personally. In her new book, Advanced Parenting (out in early April), she offers guidelines on how to manage diagnoses and differences from a place that is both realistic and optimistic. In this week’s episode of Best of Both Worlds, she and Sarah talk about practical tips and ways to feel more resilient through your parenting journey.
In the Q&A we talk about more mundane parenting — cooking meals that kids will eat! Sarah and I discuss some of our standbys. Please give the episode a listen, and as always we welcome ratings and reviews.

Our pediatrician’s office will do house calls for a flat fee that is surprisingly reasonable. I’ve often thought how convenient it would be to schedule well child visits as a house call for August (so we would have updated forms for school in September) if we ever find ourselves in a particularly busy season of life. Or for families of a larger size! Not a bad way to “waste” a hundred bucks to make your life easier!
@Amy – wow, that is a really cool service!
