It's called When Parenting Backfires: Twelve Thinking Errors that Undermine Parents Effectiveness, and we're speaking with one of the book's co-authors Dr. David Simonsen Ph.D.

I am called many things...honey, daddy, son, brother, counselor or even Doc David. Like you, I fulfill many roles in my life. Some days I do them well, other days not so much. Something that I do in all my roles is be creative.

Whether it's coming up with a unique way to spend time with my wife, creating a vacation to remember for my family or helping a couple or family find new ways to communicate, creativity and experience are important.

I have been in practice for 15 years helping families, teens and couples find ways to do life differently. Along the way I have become licensed as a Marriage & Family therapist and earned my Ph.D. in Psychology.
