Follow Friday: Kid's Gardening

The National Gardening Association has an associated website, KidsGardening,with articles for parents and schools. You can sign up for a monthly e-newsletter on the website. In June, the newsletter included their Parents Primer for getting started. This is an excellent resource for parents to continue their garden learning. It also has information for schools to set up a school or classroom garden.

On being a working parent.

At some point in this blog I like to talk about what it means to be a working parent. When we were expecting, my husband got into the Expectant Father series. I read them too, and was struck by how, with a stay-at-home-dad, I (Mom) felt the same pressures to work longer, earn more, make sure my family was taken care of.

I've always been career-oriented, and having a child hasn't changed that, much. I have to say that one of my biggest hopes, as a busy working parent, is to be like Charlie Brown's dad in this Father's Day strip.
