I’ve always defined myself as a writer and a mother. I don’t often write about being mother but almost everything I write about is somehow inspired by my children. So, it seems pretty appropriate that I am now penning a monthly column for the local Philadelphia NPR affiliate about parenting and family life. By no means does this imply that I am a parenting expert, simply that I like to write and share my thoughts about the parenting journey.
My first post went up last week and I wrote about encouraging kids to read over the summer. Up next, will be an essay on raising Black children who feel proud of their heritage in the wake of all of the negative news surrounding Black Americans. Please feel free to check out the new Philly Parenting Blog on Newsworks.org, which by the way, includes several other Philadelphia based bloggers besides me. Thanks as always for the support.
