Parenting Inc. Part Deux
In case you missed it, the second installment of Parenting Inc., the business of parenting ran on Saturday. The story is about the rise of specialized services for parents of infants and young children. There appears to be a coach for almost everything. Potty training. Sleep. I just heard there's a local lice lady who comes to you house and tells you what to do when you kid comes home with the critters in her hair. I hope I never have to call her.
For the next installment, I'm thinking of writing about companies or consultants who specialize in finding work for women or men transitioning back to work after having kids. It appears to be an emerging field. Part time work, as you know, is what many parents would prefer but find hard to come by.
So I'm interested in hearing from parents who have used such services if you're out there! Or people who run such businesses. You can drop me a line at shina AT washpost.com.
