Teaching Kids Independence: My Walmart Mom of the Year Post

I was honoured when asked to write a post for Walmart's Mom of the Year website, and took some time to ponder my topic.

Finally, I settled on a parenting issue that's very important to me (not only as a mom, but also as a teacher) which is teaching kids to be independent...and my philosophy isn't always popular!

My article is now live, and you can check it out at the following link. Be sure to let me know what you think...even if your disagree with me! (You can leave comments directly on the Walmart site as well.)

Just a one-time deal as far as I know. They want a variety of voices to represent motherhood across the country!
