Tuesday, June 28 at 2:00 pm and 7:00 pm Independence Day is just around the corner and so we're asking: what does the American Kid look like these days? How much health care does she receive, how often is he graduating from high school, with how many parents does she live and do those parents work, and on which side of the poverty level does he live? Researchers from the Annie E. Casey Foundation’s Kids Count project join us to discuss the latest data that points towards the well-being of children nationwide... and statewide.
Tuesday, June 14 at 2:00 pm and 7:00 pm It's all dads, all hour this week on Kids These Days! for a special encore broadcast just in time for Father's Day.

Where do you draw the lines between cautious and fearful; encouraging and pressuring; and healthy exposure and over-protection? Research shows that kids these days are safer and healthier than in other time in history – so why all the worry?
