Today’s guest is author Tom Sturges, who starts the conversation talking with Lynette and Stefanie about his background with the Grammy voting process. They also discuss his ‘Witness to a Dream’ foundation, where he talks about being a mentor to at-risk inner-city kids. He talks about a particular project he was proud of, and the power of music and belief.
The group then discusses Tom’s relationship with his ex-wife, and the strange circumstances under which he met his new wife. Tom talks about wanting to write a book about how to end relationships amicably, and gives the girls advice on how to ‘operate’ a man.
The guys then flash back to Tom’s early days with a tumultuous adolescence and trying to have a normal life while living with terrible roommates. Lynette and Stefanie also talk about the play date their kids finally shared, and get advice from Tom on how to nurture their kids interests as they become adolescents.
In the last segment of the show, Lynette says she’s looking forward to her kids becoming teenagers. Tom suggests that parents should ‘myth’ a little bit about their own past, at least until the kids are out of the house and on the way to college. The show then wraps with a discussion of the warning signs you should look out for with teenagers, and the importance of giving them a ‘no questions asked’ option in case they’re in a bad situation.
