I’ll tell you what those things are and why they are dangerous. Also, someone somewhere came up the contemporary rules for sleep – that kids sleep in their room, mom and dad sleep together in another room etc. The problem is these rules don’t always work for everyone yet no one ever questions them. Until now. Benjamin Reiss, professor of English at Emory University and author of the new book, Wild Nights ( explores why we sleep the way we do and why sometimes these rules need to be challenged. Plus, pediatrician Dr. Meg Meeker, author of Strong Mothers, Strong Sons ( offers some fascinating insight into the mother/son relationship. She reveals how boys predictably pull away from their moms at a certain time in their life and she has advice for moms on how to navigate this sometimes complicated relationship.
