Did having kids dredge up bad memories from your own childhood?

In this week's Parenting on the Edge, Madeleine talks with comedy writer Teresa Strasser about the effect having kids has on a person's psyche. For Strasser, recognizing how obsessively she cares for her own child reminds her of her own parents' failings.

Teresa Strasser is an Emmy-winning writer and author of Exploiting My Baby Because It's Exploiting Me.
