Please, come in.

Your son is a very bright

little boy, Miss Davidson.

Thank you. Let's get to the point.

What do the tests reveal?.

Is this on or off the record?.

Sorry, force of habit.

Okay. While he may have ADD,

I wouldn't make the diagnosis quite yet.

I'd like to see him again

in about a year, though.


-Oh, boy, it's a "but."

There's always a but.

What is it?.

I don't spend enough time with him?.

Listen, I would spend all the time

in the world if I could but I have a job.

-I love my job. What's wrong with that?.

-Relax, Miss Davidson.

The best mother is a happy mother.

I'm a mother too, a working mother.

I only did clinical research

when my daughters were young.

But you're doing a wonderful job,

that's clear.

-Still, he does have unresolved anger.

-About what?.

There is no strong male figure in his life.

Well, I have a boyfriend.

He's a photojournalist.

-Pulitzer Prize winner.


Look, studies show

that father-figure absence...

...negatively impacts children,

especially boys.

There's a higher rate

of substance abuse, truancy--

I get it. It's my fault, you're saying?.

I can't do it by myself?.

My research said plenty of successful,

well-adjusted, happy kids...

...come from single-parent households.

No one's blaming you, Miss Davidson.

Of course you can do it on your own.

But do you really want to?.

It's my choice to be a single mother.

Otherwise, I'd just be single, alone.

Look, mother to mother,

the kid can only fill your void for so long.

And boys need a father figure.




Jake, come sit down and have your cereal.

What do you want for lunch today, sweetie?.

Horatio's daddy took Horatio

to the Yankees.

You and I go to the Yankees.

Lunch, what will it be, huh?.

He sat behind the dugout. He's so lucky.

Oh. Mom's gotta go to work,

you have to go to school. Lunch.

Ice cream.



Have a good day.


Let go.

-Hey, Horatio, get off him.

-He started it.

Get back in line.

Get back in line.

Both of you.

Hey, Stuart, I got a phoner tomorrow

with Yusuf lslam.

-Some kind of terrorist?.

-Former pop star.

-Same thing.

-He used to be Cat Stevens.

Turned his back on a massive career

in the music industry...

...for a quiet life of devotion to God.

How do we get Mariah Carey to do that?.


Stuart, Paul Libbin on line 2...

...about the new Rolling Stones

juKebox musical?

Tell him I'll return when I get

back to my office. Blech.


-What?. My mother bought me this outfit.

-I didn't say anything.

Couldn't believe I'd miss

the Easter parade.

-I have a luncheon in Jersey today.

-New Jersey.

It's a fundraiser for the library.

My mom's on the board.

Wanna come?. Please?.

Lovely ladies who lunch.

Possibly some poached salmon.

I think I'll pass.




I guess we should get started.

I'd like to thank you all for coming today.

I hope everyone's enjoying the salmon.


Have a nice day.

-You're late.

I'm not late.

Must you challenge

everything I say, darling?.

I love that outfit on you.

-The shoes are another story.


As president

of the Friends of the Library... is my great privilege to introduce

today's guest speaker, Julie Davidson.

So you couldn't take a whole day off

and spend a little time with your mother?.

-You could have brought my Jake.

-He's in school, Ma.

Miss Davidson is an experienced

and award-winning reporter...

...who writes the "Choices" column
