There are two parts to Discussion Two.

Once you have become familiar with the organization’s website and offerings, please listen to (1) Podcast from Zero to Three’s website link below and provide answers to the (5) questions below.
ZERO TO THREE’s podcast series, Little Kids, Big Questions , addresses some of the most common (and challenging) issues facing parents of babies and toddlers, such as: helping a baby learn to sleep through the night; dealing with a picky eater; and learning to set limits on children’s behavior. The series is hosted by Ann Pleshette Murphy, a past contributor to ABC’s Good Morning America Parenting Segment and Vice President of the ZERO TO THREE Board of Directors.
