Girls Gone Child

Girls Gone Child (December 2010)

We think parenting babies is hard, but in reality feeding, diapering and rocking are a whole lot easier than molding little minds. But when the diapers come off, all of a sudden, we are faced with tiny human beings who are developing a sense of self and the world around them.

As their parents, we are the chosen guides, yet without a GPS, Google Maps, or a handbook, we're supposed to steer them in the right direction.

Ultimately, we want them to be productive, compassionate citizens who make us proud. The question is, "How do we get there?"

Girls Gone Child is the hilarious, gut-wrenching, tender journey from the cradle to the classroom. It is less about raising children and more about them raising us - one joyful, painful baby step at a time.
