99 Problems But Here Are Just 10

There are a lot of deep, heavy issues with raising kids in San Francisco, and in the Bay Area at large. It’s expensive to live here, the culture is not very kid-friendly, and the public school system needs a lot of support. In the midst of all of that, sometimes it’s a good idea to take a minute to just laugh at ourselves and celebrate the quirks of raising kids in SF, which is what my piece on The Bold Italic does today.

 

My friends and I came up with 10 Very San Francisco Parenting Problems, and you can read the compiled list on The Bold Italic. I think my favorite is the tiny headbanger at the dinner table, but the flogging Santas are pretty great, too.

 

I’ve had a few other pieces published this week, and I would be remiss if I didn’t give you a chance to check those out, too!

 

Here’s my piece about the social etiquette phenomenon that is The Bay Area Reschedule, on Thirty Threadbare Mercies.

 

My bit of flash fiction was included in a round up of short prose pieces about star beings on the Literary Kitchen.

The star people I live with. My loves.

 

Our weekly Cinapse TWO CENTS column was on Unbreakable, the 2000 M. Night Shylamalan superhero flick, and I weighed in as usual.


Thanks so much for reading!
