SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT: WHO YA GONNA CALL???
Some people, if there's something weird, and it don't look good, call Ghostbusters.
But for me, if there's something weird and it don't look good, I call Cousin Ruth. Because she is just about the smartest, most insightful person I know.
And now Cousin Ruth, with colleague Hannah Wiltshire, is starting a business helping parents parent. www.everydayparentingnyc.com
She'll be presenting a workshop so check out the info below and her new cool website!
Limit Setting Workshop
Do you ever find yourself wondering how to set appropriate limits? Or even what limits are appropriate to begin with?
In this workshop we will focus on ways to incorporate discipline into your household without locking horns with your child. Learn how to convey what behavior you expect, what is unacceptable and how to follow through with realistic consequences. Led by Hannah Wiltshire and Ruth Wyatt, co-directors of Everyday Parenting.

MY PRIVATE CONEY presents IT WAS HER NEW YORK, the short stories that accompany the work-in-progress video and photo collection of the same name (myprivateconey.com - media link - IT WAS HER NEW YORK). The stories and the media explore the tender rubble that holds both my mother, Florence's and New York's soul as one disappears into old age and the other into gentrification. All are real observations and/or experiences with very little tall-tale telling.
Except when it makes the story better.
