Spencer West was born with a genetic disorder that affected his legs. Minutes after he was born, a physician told his parents he would probably never walk. And by the age of five, both of his legs had been amputated. But he spent a lifetime challenging himself and challenging the way people think about physical disability. In the past year, West completed a 300 kilometer trek across Canada in a wheelchair and on his hands.

I'm Michel Martin. We're going to spend much of the rest of this program today talking about issues in parenting. In a few minutes, our parenting roundtable will take on the issue of when to step in if you think a child is in danger. As you might imagine, we're talking about this because there have been a number of stories about parents being arrested for things like leaving a child in a park unattended when another parent believes the child to be in danger.

I'm Michel Martin. We begin today with a look at how social media is affecting the way we learn about war. If you haven't seen for yourself how Twitter, YouTube and Facebook have revolutionized the way the media does its job, you cannot miss it now. We're also seeing more information, photos and videos than ever from activists, aid workers and even what we might call ordinary people who happen to be on the frontlines of conflict.

They say it takes a village to raise a child but maybe you just need a few moms and dads in your corner. Every week, we check in with a diverse group of parents for their common sense and savvy advice. Today, we want to talk about public interventions into other people's parenting. And we're talking about this because it seems as though we're seeing more of this these days.
