New Parenting Advice Column Needs Readers/Problems

I am starting a weekly advice column on my blog, Playground Confidential. I hope to answer questions and concerns about all aspects of parenting and being a parent. My personal expertise as a Mom only extends as far as pre-schoolers right now. (I have a 33-month-old son and a 3-month-old daughter.) I am, however, the eldest of four (the baby is still a teen) and have much experience to draw on from all ages.

My advice will be my opinion, of course, and will probably reflect my personal biases. (That's why you asked me, right?) Like the rest of my blog's content, the tone will be light and funny, flippant at times, but my advice will be real. I will do my utmost to address the problem at hand and will happily do research and consult with experts to get to the bottom line.

I plan on running this column on my blog for a few weeks to get my stride before pitching it as a syndication to various community newspapers and websites. This is your chance to get in on the ground floor.

Please email your questions to:

P.S. Note that I am based in Toronto, Canada and have especial knowledge of the health care system, laws, regulations, school systems, etc. here in Canada.
