blessing of a b-

After posting about parenting for dark times, I thought I should offer this 'on the other hand' from Wendy Mogel.  My bookclub read Blessing of a Skinned Knee and it was a great intro into the "free range parenting" world, but with a spiritual edge.  I'm looking forward to Blessing of a B-  (NYT review here) aimed at parents of teens, since parent-directed-parenting morphs into something slightly more chaotic and child-directed, I think, as kids become young adults themselves.
