After spending an evening with my daughter at her college I’m driving home reflecting on the role shift that’s happening, I wanted to share the importance of being a parent first, then a friend.

If you’d like to send me a note, you can at PO Box 261, New Haven, NY 13121. I’d love to hear from you...
