Episode 19 - Parent Training to Decrease Challenging Behavior

Everyone needs help sometimes whether it's a family dealing with challenging behavior or podcast hosts avoiding nonsensical tangents.  This week's episode spends most of it's running time with the former, reviewing research on how to help behavior analysts to help parents in the home.  From tantrums in quadruplets to overcoming mealtime woes, we've got something for even the smartest parents and practitioners to learn.  In regards to the latter--with Rob getting in character with his Fran Drescher nanny impression, Jackie bringing up fishing and Beyonce, and Diana comparing research to delicious gravy--we may have been less successful.
