A few weeks ago I emailed “Figuring out when (and when not) to say no” to Lisa Belkin, Senior Columnist for HuffPo’s Parents section. She liked the piece, asked for a headshot, and now here we are. In the future I’ll be cross-posting some of the best content from Growing Sideways on my HuffPo blog and I’m excited to have the chance to share the writing I’m doing here with a wider circle of readers.
And speaking of sharing content from Growing Sideways, I though I’d take this chance to highlight different ways to follow along with the blog:
- If you’re on Facebook and are inclined, please take a second to “like” the official Growing Sideways Facebook page. As the first band I ever loved used to sing, “Nothing attracts a crowd like a crowd.”
- Follow me on Twitter (@kshartnett) where I tweet content from the blog along with miscellaneous parenting tidbits including this gem from Dr. Spock who warned that it’s a bad idea to “cool off” before punishing your kids: “It takes a pretty grim parent to whip a child when the anger is gone.”

However you choose to following along, thank you for reading!
