play Episode

What do you think about expelling or suspending kids from school? Do you think it should be phased out? Or do you think kids should be disciplined for behaving badly? 

Andrew and Holly chat about how one school principal is making a difference by having never suspended or expelled students in his 37 years as an educator. 

Plus, Daddo nailed parenting when he let his 16-year-old daughter and her friend go camping... alone! But of course, not before he set a few rules in place.
