    Hi Bruce and Dr. Jennifer, this looks like tomorrow night’s sharing of parenting advice will be really interesting.  I cannot be part of it but will look forward to the transcript.  I have a daughter who is almost finished with her Psy.D. degree, Dr. Jennifer, so I really enjoyed your interview about choosing Clinical Psychology as a career, http://ow.ly/dFuvg .  Thanks, Bruce, for always making #DadChat so interesting. HOORAY! for people like you two!

      Thank you Loretta! I’m sorry you won’t be joining us, but glad to hear that you enjoyed the interview on SoWhaddyaDo. I get a fair amount of emails from students about that link. If I may ask, where is your daughter studying? Please let her know she can contact me anytime if she has questions about the field. I love speaking to students.
