Check out The Washington Post’s new column, Momspeak.

My colleague, Tracy Grant, the editor of KidsPost and mother of two teenage boys, will write about parenting this unique age group and other topics in Local Living every other week. Today’s column is about how to cherish the good in teenagers. Personally, as the mother of two young children, it gives me hope for the future.

Tracy would love to hear your thoughts at onparenting@washpost.com.
