When I heard back from the deputy editor of Scary Mommy, informing me that they planned to run my submission “Why I Still Read Out Loud to My Teens,” I was stoked! Scary Mommy is my go-to online source for parenting entertainment and information. I realized the importance of advice from other mothers early on. Scary Mommy content makes me think, laugh, and feel good. How Exciting!
For years, I’ve wanted to write an article on our teen read aloud sessions. While most of our peers abandoned the bedtime routine, my husband and I kept the tradition alive. It isn’t something we talk about often. Occasionally, it comes up. When it does, people always want to know more. The curiosity of others compelled me to share our story. I hope you enjoy, friends.
Many thanks to Scary Mommy for running my piece!
