'Caller Clinic' Opening Soon

I have been listening to you for about a year on Sirius XM Stars, and I enjoy your program. I find that the advice and recommendations that you give to callers helps me to better understand myself and others.

Though I enjoy your program, I get frustrated with callers that don't take the time to understand your values, before they ask you for advice! For instance, I don't understand why a female caller would say that she was "her kids' mom" and "her husband's girlfriend", then continue to ask you if she should put her newborn in daycare. Since she is a "single" mom trying to deal with issues between her children and her second husband's children in their "blended family"? I think it is insulting to you when callers identify with your "my kids' mom" slogan and then expect to be validated in a way that is contrary to your entire belief system.

I am thinking about writing my own caller's guide for the Dr. Laura program. I'll send it to you when it's done, so that we can have a good laugh together. Perhaps you can use it to hold a "caller clinic" to educate potential future callers.


Are you truly your husband's girlfriend and your kids mom? Tell us about a time when you had second throughts, by signing up for the FREE Dr. Laura Family and send an email here.
