Parenting Our Best is my goal, which I occasionally hit.
I am the mother of three adult children.
I am a lawyer and a Parenting and Education Advocate
I have 13 years times 2 children in the Chicago Public Schools and 8 years of CPS and 7 years at an elite Private school.
I have been though the selective admission process 5 times in CPS and the college application process 3 times.
I have served on 2 Local School Councils for three terms, volunteered, substituted, taught test prep and study skills and been an Adjunct Law Professor
All of that said, here is what I know…
Every interaction I have with a child, determines whether that child will become my “doctor” or become the reason that I need a doctor.
I want the world to be full of “doctors”
and it can be.
Our children need us to educate them,
nurture them and
advocate for them.
