Our panelists predict what parenting trend will sweep the nation next.

PETER SAGAL, Host:

Now, panel, what will be the next big fad in parenting? Adam Felber?

ADAM FELBER: It's a method where parents do a weekly review of their kid's performance in a glitzy panel setting. It's called "Childhood Idol."

(SOUNDBITE OF LAUGHTER)

SAGAL: Roxanne Roberts?

ROXANNE ROBERTS: You've heard of helicopter parents and balloon boy? The next high-flying fad, put the baby in a capsule, shoot it into space and let it come back in about, oh, 18 years.

(SOUNDBITE OF LAUGHTER)

SAGAL: And Mo Rocca?

MO ROCCA: Get your baby delivered by a midwife from the cast of "Star Trek."

(SOUNDBITE OF LAUGHTER)

CARL KASELL, Host:

And if any of those happen, panel, we'll ask you about it on WAIT WAIT...DON'T TELL ME!

SAGAL: Thank you, Carl Kasell.

(SOUNDBITE OF APPLAUSE)

SAGAL: Thanks also to Mo Rocca, Adam Felber, Roxanne Roberts. Thanks to our fabulous audience here at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium. We will see you, good people, next week.

(SOUNDBITE OF MUSIC)

SAGAL: This is NPR.
