(Kids Are Not Defective Part 2)
After reflecting on the last show, I wanted to explore my family comments a bit more thoroughly. Why do adults jump so quickly to the defense of the authority figures in their lives?

To answer these questions, I briefly channel a "composite character" assembled from many of my past discussions about raising children.
