My Essay in Root and Sprout

An article I wrote has been published in the latest edition of the on-line parenting magazine Root and Sprout. Called "It's Back to School Time. Why am I so Happy?" the essay is about the glee and guilt we parents feel when we toss our children out of the car on their butts in the school parking lot lovingly send our little darlings to school. Look for it in the Grow Through Laughter section of the zine.

You'll also find articles about marriage (Dating Your Spouse: How to Reclaim Your Marriage, by Teresa Hirst), volunteering at your child's school (No Time to Volunteer? by John Boynton) and being a special needs student (Dear Mom and Dad: What It’s Like to Be A Child with Special Needs, by Kirk Martin).

I discovered Root and Sprout while surfing parenting websites and was very impressed with the quality of the writing, the wide range of topics which cover everything from basic parenting to the impact being a parent has on your relationships, as well as the beauty of the website itself. New issues of Root and Sprout come out monthly.
