Parenting in the 21st century


When I was eight years old, and other little girls wanted to be a teacher or  a nurse, I knew that I wanted to be a psychologist, and that passion has stayed with me.  I have lived in Brooklyn all of my life, and really enjoy the diversity of Park Slope where I live now.  I am the single mother of an 18 year old who began college this fall.  I've traveled and had adventures all over the world. I am a political activist, and have been fighting for social and environmental justice since I was an adolescent.  I went on my first peace march when I was 14, and I'm still marching.  I'm an MSNBC addict and was thrilled to hear that Melissa Harris-Perry is getting her own show.


While I am certainly committed to the importance of intrapsychic processes, I think that we can only understand ourselves by looking at the intersection between our inner world and what's happening all around us.
