So here’s a New Year’s resolution I urge you to make for 2012.
Write letters to your kids. Get it in writing. Preserve it for posterity.
That’s what this blog is all about. Letterstomykids.org is drawn from journals about my personal family history that I wrote for our kids, Michael and Caroline, over the course of two years.
Now, as January 1 nears, I’m calling on all you parents (and grandparents) out there to do the same.
But why take my word for it? Look below at the endorsements my humble little blog has accumulated from The New York Times,The Washington Post, CBS News and Huffington Post.
Chances are, if the White House were even remotely aware of my existence – a big “if,” I know – it would probably recommend it, too.
Ditto the GOP, for that matter.
That’s why my home page invites you to “Take The Pledge” (below). Just click the link and scroll down to the pledge icon. Click again to close the ad there and click once more to answer the question, “Will you pledge to write letters to your kids?” (Presumably your answer will be “yes.”
Voila! Three clicks and you’ll see your voice counted.
