Pathetic Plea for Tech Help

So. Anyone out there who has both cable and TiVO who can figure out how to tape the re-broadcast of the Campbell Brown show on CNN that I was just on and maybe even send me a link, or post it on YouTube, if that is not hidesouly illegal? The show re-airs at 4 a.m. Eastern Time. And if this the FCC reading this, just kidding!

    Hey thanks! Never mind my plea anymore, folks — that link works just perfectly and I’m set. Yay! Happy Thanksgiving! — Lenore

    The FCC is too busy dealing with the complaints they get from the busy bodies with the PTC to worry about you having a copy of a show you were on. If you asked, you may be able to get it from CNN, even if they charge for the tape and the expense of copying it.
    I could borrow a device from my brother that would allow copying the recording I got of the original airing off the DVR but he would frown on this because he is a copyright lawyer.

    I watched the video Lenore. They seemed to have treated the subject matter better than the Fox interview did. I think next time you should be less apologetic about letting your son ride the subway. A better comparison would be that the riding the subway would be the urban equivalent to letting a country boy ride a dirt bike or go down to the fishing pond to catch some frogs.

    Well, the way I do this is, we have Tivo, a Slingbox, and the At-Large software, links below.

    You then record it on Tivo, then set it up to play back, start the At-Large software to record your Tivo through Slingbox.

    It’s simple to do, once you have the Slingbox and the software.

    good interview, I’d suggest that when you make the point about talking to stranger’s always couple it with why, as it would seem counterintuitive to most parents.

    Stick to the babysteps, helicopter parents will shut down at the notion of letting their kids ride the subway, but would be more open to “unstructured playtime”.

    One other suggestion would be not to position free range kids as a “philosphy” but rather as simply a common sense approach to parenting in these overprotective times. Phrases like “we believe in…” etc. tend to emphasise and us/them dynamic (religion? philiosphy? club?) an alternative approach might be to put it onto the listener, “you want to raise a kid that’s independent, etc. so you need to do ….”

    Loved your book, we parents are raising future adults not pets.

    I’m glad you had a link to the video online. We are on vacation, so catching something on TV is problematic, but I finally got to watch it. Great job!!

    You could have said that the suburban equivalent to letting your son take the subway is letting your child walk to soccer – ha ha.

    Actually, a great point that was brought out by the other guest, Po Bronson, that I had not considered, but find VERY obvious!!

    As kids grow up, they need to take risks to develop into normal adults, and with all the overprotection of teens, their own development is stunted in this regard. So now you have young adults in their twenties, even up to age 30, who engage in behaviors that before, only 15 year olds did, because they have to learn things on their own.

    To take this a step further: I can imagine that many Romeo and Juliet relationships evolve from this very situation. To this end, over protection creates the environment that many young adults feel the need to date illegal minors, and now they end up on the registry BECAUSE of this overprotection . And of course, the cycle is complete: The overprotection now reverse and become over-BURDENING them to sub-human status for the rest of their lives.

    Lenore, of course, was dead on right with her own analysis. A great role model for parents!!

    letsgetreal50: Here’s an analogy I like to use, and that might go well with parents: when a toddler is learning how to toddle, his falls and other missteps may look scary, but they aren’t dangerous because he isn’t big or strong enough to really hurt himself falling or tripping. But what if kids waited until they were teenagers or twentysomethings before learning to walk? Lots of broken bones, torn ligaments and a few serious head or neck injuries, that’s what. That’s because they’re big enough to do real damage to themselves (and possibly others).

    There’s also the fact that younger kids are more aware of their own limitations than teenagers and young adults, so as they practice independence at a reasonable age they’re not likely to overdo it.
