A divided attention time and should be given to you children and I agree and some other attacks come in and saying you know wide. The you'd putting a child in danger if you gathered on the phone does you probably really shouldn't be on the phone and drive in anyway out ya good point balls most things not right here you think the average person knows what dig in into Winamp which now they'll. I don't think so I mean I think I think maybe god even set up that. You got some cells and it. It does is like god I. And yes I'd like David coming out like Evan like. Did knee surgery when peoples have sued done at the same time because of TV on if you need them both Leno and get them both on the same time. They're afraid that you and get one done and after that you'll say no. No thank him there are not gonna hear about it it's exactly and music we gonna and it Darche and our revised professor of psychology at Notre Dame good morning and thanks to comment on. I you're welcome good morning Q yeah actually in the state that it got published recently. Where we asked the doubts about the early childhood in the least idea young children. Development has done at the young kids and their parents. But the study looked. Aaron what we call the at all now. Every animal has announced short term then yeah I'll you'd turn into well functioning creature. Very Smart intelligent pitcher. And somehow we've forgotten human being at Aetna students are young and so are examining how important characteristic are so that includes blocking the faction.

Any out here radical model threatening letter really experienced that feeling securely attached to signal that they are allergy. I'd better mental well. Much anxiety depression. Better ability to take the perspectives of other people. And then. I'm better. Kind of a more open hearted kind morality. Instead of itself protected reality been a lot of ordinary I don't know. And just wonder how we got away from that because intuitively when I had my daughter and you know she's wanting now but. Com the AD you know I tried that these we tried to keep the child in the crib thing for about a minute amendments. The port on was was crying and joke and she was crying so much in. Cycle how can leaving a young child like that. Feeling abandoned one of all things it's dark be good for anybody or anything you didn't make sense to me intuitively. The ads and on our cultures and gotten away from understanding that it's important on the compassionate care and instincts. And batons. What they need and that's something that's built Internet AD AD integral while they need to be right neared parents pretty much like. Caring and rocking and holding it makes the brain. You compromise and agree ships into the you know strapped. And strength kill law narrow little networks in the name on it at eight. I wish I could be nicer than this. I think a lot of parents do it because it's almost like out of sight out of mind we can be alone and that's what they said the Dusan we're gonna do it. But I do as he you don't insane or what should it be better and thinking man but I'm out. What I it's unfortunate that and they get that impression to appearance in eighty plants. The waterworks while it should be quiet in the corner particularly to take lightly on. Right or toys even where you can take him down off the shelf and play with a when you won Nance on the Orix. And how did. When it comes to phones and so forth did you study include Dan. I'm not that steady we are looking at that electronic media. A big cats yeah parents I know our spending and look at on the Pakistan understand it and I'd AD. I can understand it's important for brain development structure Ike isn't. When your breast see you do acts. But in a debate right. That stand. And kidney back. This evidence now optional add it bit you can diagnose stress on kids ought to hit them if they look at people.

On to settle here. In the new loans area were also to talk to Jim Donald in Louisiana commissioner of insurance. About what you need to know if you were affected by the tornado about filing insurance claims after the damage. And a hail storms and everything else and I would ask you dead if you. In the past. Have had a bad experience with a contractor I don't know that we necessarily need names to complicated legally. But I would ask you to call in and tell its story as a cautionary tale so other people. If they find themselves in the same situation. As it's happening. Remember wait a minute that's what does exactly with a guy on the woman on debit WL was talking about it. And they don't make that same mistake so if you have been ripped off by a contractor. Or you made a mistake after hail storm more severe weather or maybe you just decided to remodel.
