Just published - guest post at New America Foundation

As the year begins, here at Family and Home Network we're thinking about the “big picture” of families’ well-being in our society. In spending our time nurturing our own children, we contribute to the well-being of our communities, our nation and to the world. And each of us is impacted by the well-being of our neighbors, our communities, our nation and the world.

We’re starting a new resource page titled “Thinking about the Big Picture.” The topics will include: community-building, promoting empathy, building resilience (for children and for parents), cultural influences (commercialism, violence, lack of nurturing), play and happiness, expressing gratitude and experiencing awe.

What are your "big picture" concerns?

Important reminder about the dangers of keeping prescription drugs in our homes--and a nation-wide "take back" day so you can safely dispose of unwanted medicines.

For at-home parents: Google+ hangouts to discuss transitioning home - what do you do all day? how is your personal identity changing? do your expectations match your reality? and lots more.... Please see our website for details.
