You know you’re supposed to check if the house your child is playing at has a gun in it, or the carpool your child is riding in has a texting or drinking driver, or the sleepover your child is going to has responsible adult supervision. But it’s so very awkward to ask. Join About.com parenting experts Terri Mauro (specialchildren.about.com), Catherine Holecko (familyfitness.about.com), Susan Adcox (grandparents.about.com), and Amanda Morin (kidsactivities.about.com) as we give some advice for how to do this vetting of other parents, and how to gracefully receive those questions yourself. Find links to stories we mentioned in the podcast, and tell us how you handle your vetting, on our Facebook page.
