- On April 17,
2000 -- Knight-Ridder Tribune News Service syndicated five columnists.
I was one of the five and the only parenting columnist to ever
be offered syndication. WOW -- it still hasn't hit me yet! Being
dubbed in the media as the next "Erma Bombeck and Dear Abby"
of parenting for the next millennium, is certainly a huge pair
of shoes to fill. With a new book due out this fall, I will try
to do my best for the public and meet those expectations.

Defining Moment: Recently, I heard on a news program that
children of parents who work at home can grow up to be more independent,
caring and respectful of others. These children can better grasp
the true meaning of the real world due to the daily amount of
exposure in rewards, as well as the pitfalls, of their parents.
It provides an enviornment to better understand goals while getting
a healthy dose of what discipline and hard work ethics are all
about. When I heard this, I said, "Yes!" :)

- Professional Goal #1. My goals
for the upcoming year would be that I don't "over schedule"
my time where I end up placing my own family on the back burner.
- Professional Goal #2. To try
and continue to write at least one book each year for the next
- Professional Goal #3. To continue
to strive to give parents all over America a platform (and a
well deserved pat-on-the-back!) within my parenting column, Parent to Parent.
