Expecto Patronum

As I’ve written about before on Not This Song, the already complicated job of being a parent is made more complicated when the parent lives with a mental illness. I’m not the only one who thinks so: there’s a relatively new site called Crazy Good Parent that does a great job of mixing facts, humor, empathy and realism when talking about these issues. This month I contributed this piece to a series on communicating with your children about these tricky topics. Check it (and the rest of the site) out!
