          “Show Me the Money!”
          Ashton, 17, refuses to do chores around the house unless he gets paid. He claims his parents are rich and it’s time for them to cough up the cash.



          Is he spoiled or should his parents loosen up?

           




          Finding Your True Self
          Author Dr. John Chirban and Olympic gold medalist, Mary Lou Retton, offer advice to help children find their passion in life. They share their thoughts with a 13-year-old girl whose mom won’t let her play football, even though she’s the star athlete in the league!

          “You can’t fight against the heart,” Mary Lou says.
