What’s your take: Who’s your go-to person for your parenting questions

So I added this poll back in November, and it just kind of quietly hung out on the sidebar, waiting to be noticed.  Here are the results of that noticing: Running things past mom (or dad, maybe) is a clear winner in this case.  I think it’s kind of nice that there is still the… Continue reading What’s your take: Who’s your go-to person for your parenting questions
