A parent’s role today may still hold the same job description -- taking care of the kids and instilling values. But new obstacles -- like screen time and solo parenting -- have thrown many moms and dads into uncharted territory. Certified parent coach Cindy Shuster talks about helping attain happiness in the home. Plus, author Jane Isay talks about her book Unconditional Love: A Guide to Navigating the Joys and Challenges of Being a Grandparent Today.

Jane Isay will talk as part of the Jewish Literature Festival, more information here.
