Recommended videos: The Curse of the Good Girl, and Saying Goodbye to College Kids

There were two video segments on The Today Show this week that I wanted to recommend to you:

First is Rachel Simmons, author of the new book The Curse of the Good Girl and the older book Odd Girl Out, talking with Dr. Roni Cohen-Sandler, author of Stressed-Out Girls, about what it takes to raise authentic daughters. The conversation got very "Mojo Mom"-esque at the end if I do say so myself, as they talked about how we as Moms can show girls what it means to have authentic selves.

The second segment features Dr. Michele Borba, talking with Meredith Vieira about saying goodbye to college-bound kids. A real tear-jerker, and full of good advice. Dr. Borba's new book is The Big Book of Parenting Solutions, and she's going to be my guest on The Mojo Mom Podcast next week! I think she's so smart and right on target with her approach to parenting.
