Readers, I’m thrilled to share that I’ve taken on the position of Print Managing Editor of Your Teen Magazine for Parents. I love Your Teen’s smart, helpful, down-to-earth writing for parents of tweens and teens, and it’s an honor to be part of getting that writing to you. (Check it out! http://www.yourteenmag.com)
Now, for your part. Please let me know what you want to read about as a parent of 9-19 year olds – what you worry about, what makes you laugh, what moves your heart, and what you need to know. Email me anytime at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’d love to hear from you.
p.s. It’s important to me that I continue to write in addition to editing. So, I promise I’ll still be writing, and I’ll still be sharing those pieces here. Thanks, as always, for reading!
