Harvey Karp talks about nurturing calm in your kids [Live video chat]

Welcoming a child into your home can be one of the most wondrous and transforming experiences of a lifetime.

It can also be the most challenging time of your life, seeming to test the human limits of sleeplessness, patience and selflessness. Figuring out the best approach can be difficult when you're verging on zombiehood.

Noted pediatrician and child development specialist Dr. Harvey Karp joins us in a live video chat at 1 p.m. PDT today to share insights into the techniques he details in his "The Happiest Baby" series of books and DVDs, including the infant-calming five S's and the tantrum-taming "fast-food rule."

We invite you to participate; Dr. Karp will also address your questions and comments.
