I wrote this Parent.co essay before Election Day and it feels odd to share something right now that does not in some way address the despair so many of us in this country are experiencing. But this piece, about how being a mom does not necessarily equip you to be a good aunt, does happen to be about feeling scared and uncertain. It’s also about connecting in those scared and uncertain times. Love to all who are feeling this - you are not alone.
