"There were these unseen, unaccountable forces that were really setting the agenda and we were tasked with simply implementing it. They really weren’t interested in our views even though they said they were. They weren’t interested in having us authentically engage the community, even though they said they wanted that . . ."

One of my many proud parenting moments (that make up for all the "Bad Mummy Awards" I've received) was when I took my daughter out for brunch before she left for college. There was a family at a table sitting next to us, and they were letting their kids run riot. I was thinking to myself that it wasn't the way I'd have allowed my kids to behave in a restaurant, particularly a crowded restaurant on a Sunday morning, but my daughter was clearly extremely annoyed by it. When we got in the car afterward, she expressed her annoyance to me and said "You always expected US to have 'restaurant manners'". I hadn't used the phrase "restaurant manners' since they were small, but I guess it stuck - along with the manners! Parents, it's exhausting to instill good manners - it feels like you are repeating yourself constantly and that your little ones aren't listening to a word you say, but your kids deserve a sustained effort on your part. And you never know - a decade or so later they might even thank you for it in a roundabout way!
On a long flight a little while ago, I saw two couples watch movies while they let their six kids run around like maniacs from take off to touchdown. A seven-year old actually punched me. (I didn't return the punch)....

Author and Greenwich resident Sarah Littman has taken on a controversial and ever changing subject in her recent young adult books - social media and the Internet. The book has been picked up by Scholastic Book Fairs and Clubs, leading to an uptick in Littman's emails from young "Backlash readers" telling her of their being cyberbullied. Littman, who is often asked to speak to issues around social media in Greenwich schools, spoke of the critic...

When you're grieving, you never know what will trigger the next meltdown, that next wave of uncontrollable sobbing, the feeling that your heart is broken into so many tiny fragments that it cannot ever possibly be whole again...
