Good news twice!
The New Yorker Dec.16 included my comments on the sad story (in the Dec.2 issue of the magazine) by Rachel Aviv who wrote about an immigrant mother losing custody of her son over a six-year period, starting when the boy was three. The Cambridge Chronicle published my letter on an opinion piece about the fatigue experienced by family members caring long-term for disabled or elderly family members. The links are here:
My New Yorker letter nyr.kr/1iXq4b8 begins, “Aviv’s sad story might have been different if the U.S. provided universal access to parenting programs….”
The Chronicle letter bit.ly/1aYJQZB ends, “When communities make appropriate resources more widely available to parents at every stage of children’s lives and when we, as responsible parents, beging to accept these as routine…our family lives can only improve.”
All in favor, say aye.
