Coming up on Forum:
Paleontologist and "Dinosaur Train" host Scott Sampson says that the average American child spends about four to seven minutes a day outside. In his new book "How to Raise a Wild Child," Sampson calls on parents to become "nature mentors" and help their kids connect to the outdoors. We'll talk with Sampson about how to raise kids who love nature at a time when gratification is only a click away.
In his new book "The Road to Character," New York Times columnist David Brooks writes that Americans focus too much on "resume virtues" -- the ones that can get you a job -- and not enough on "eulogy virtues," the ones that get talked about at your funeral. The latter, he writes, include qualities like bravery, honesty and loyalty. Brooks joins us to talk about what it means to live a moral and meaningful life.
