Harvard’s Parenting Advice, Racism & My Stepparenting Essay

For your Sunday reading pleasure, here are three of my favorite links from the past week.

Harvard psychologists have been studying what it takes to raise “good kids.” I love the first tip: hang out with your kids. Could “good” parenting be so simple?

These tweets about how white people sound when they disagree with people of color about racism are brilliant. She puts a humorous twist on the entitlement of people who deny a problem simply because they haven’t personally experienced it. You don’t have to be racist to perpetuate racism.

And finally, today, Scary Mommy published my essay about the question every stepparent dreads in which I share a story from my own life to address a rarely-discussed issue concerning the fine balance of blended families.

This is day 21 of 30 consecutive days of blogging. I’m glad you’re along for the ride. If you liked this post, please share using the buttons below. If you have something to add, feel free to comment openly or anonymously.
