RantWoman would be inclined to add TraumaMama's blog to blogroll, but new entries have been discontinued. Instead here are a couple entries that spoke to RantWoman.
RantWoman is interested in the alternative assignments suggested in this post and the point that school is not automatically the most sensitive place for LOTS of kids. At the same time, RantWoman thinks it is more important for parents to do the best they can to walk with kids as they go through rough spots than necessarily to try to protect them from everything that might come along. Parents cannot protect kids from everything!
This is a powerful post about being called to adopt and lots of other tangled family formation issues.
