What They’re Saying About Parent Rapsody:
"I have long been a fan of using the arts to promote the cause of healthy child development. Charlie Appelstein's Parent Rapsody is an excellent addition! The music draws you in and the message is sound. I recommend it to anyone seeking a way to reach parents and help them attend to what needs doing to make the lives of children better in this time when so many parents are confused and distracted."

"Move over Spock and Gershwin ! Charlie's "Parent Rhapsody" holds the key to healthy parenting. These lyrics will stick with you, and guide you, as you navigate those challenging moments with your kids. I only wish it was available when my children were younger."
—Mike Nikitas, Anchor, NECN (New England Cable News)
