Rufus Griscom, the founder of Babble.com, has been the weekly guest for the month of January. Each week we delved into one of the parenting taboos highlighted on the taboo-smashing column on Babble.com called 'Bad Parent'. Each segment has generated a lot of listener discussion, so we thought we'd compile the segments here.

Bad Parent: Ambivalent Parenting
We asked listeners to tell us if they were willing to admit that were ambivalent about becoming parents.

Bad Parent: The Limits
We asked listeners to tell us what their limit is on how much they'll sacrifice for their kids.

Bad Parent: How Many Kids Should You Have?
We asked listeners: Is 6 kids too many? Is 1 not enough? And is it anyone else's business how many kids you have anyway?

Bad Parent: What's So Bad About Spoiling Your Kids?
Does spoiling create little monsters, or are you just giving your kids what they need to get ahead?
