Finally, Some Advice We Want
The one thing you are guaranteed to receive when you are a parent is advice. A lot of it, and most of which you didn’t ask for.
But for once we are happy to be getting some parenting advice from family therapist Michele Kambolis. Parent Traps is her new weekly Vancouver Sun advice column, where she tackles the delicate situations and awkward problems we all face as parents.
“After fifteen years working with youth and their families, I have heard it all. I recognize that parents need a platform to both ask extreme questions about the stickiest dilemmas and share their less-than-flattering parenting moments,” says Kambolis.
You mean we aren't the only ones whose kids says she wants to stuff us in the garbage can? Thank goodness! —Alexandra Suhner Isenberg
