In this interview, Alan offers up tips for parents on how to make the most of a college visit.

In his life off-screen, Alan is also author of two books: How Men Have Babies: The Pregnant Father’s Survival Guide and How to Raise Kids Who Won’t Hate You: Bringing Up Rockstars and Other Forms of Children.
