In this podcast episode, Jenn Curtis and Cindy Muchnick interview Catherine Newman, author of How to Be a Person: 65 Hugely Useful, Super-Important Skills to Learn Before You're Grown Up. Catherine chats about what gave her the idea to write this essential title, her take on independence and interdependence and why they're both important, and the value of resilience.
Whether your kids are in preschool or high school (and beyond!) they have something to learn from How to Be a Person. Hilariously written and superbly illustrated, this book teaches us all how to be more self-reliant while also reminding us to help others along the way.

She is the etiquette columnist for Real Simple magazine, a regular contributor to the New York Times Motherlode blog, and editor-in-chief of the James Beard Award-winning kids cooking magazine ChopChop.
