If you’re a cool mama like me you know that there are now two flavors of Parenting Magazine: Early Years and School Years. (I qualify for both.) For the May 2010 issues, both versions are running excerpts from my new book, and please do run out and buy at the newsstand. But just in case you do some of your media consumption online, and just in case you haven’t devoured the book cover to cover already, you can also read these two different essays on the parenting.com website. This one is from a chapter I called “Unaccompanied Mother.” This one is called “Penny the Pig.” Hope you enjoy.
