This category allows you to raise a parenting quandary that solicits reader feedback. The nature of the dilemma should be set out clearly, with careful attention to the writer's personal pros and cons, and any additional mitigating factors. The dilemma will then be polled and discussed in the comments section. Examples include whether to let your ten year old have an Instagram account or insist your friend's children refer to you as Mr. or Mrs. Up to 800 words. Pitches or completed essays welcomed. 

For time-sensitive pieces, email us directly at, with the word "timely" in all caps in the subject line.
