Get Your Matriarch On

Dear Sally, Lately, I’ve noticed my plate is too full. I’m overwhelmed, irritable, and snapping at people. I’m normally not that kind of person and it’s upsetting to me and those around me that I’m acting this way. But it feels like everyone wants a piece of me. I’m in a director role in a…

Middle Ground Mom

Dear Sally, My daughter is the true love of my life. Not to say that I don’t feel as much love for my son, but my daughter, being my first child, being challenging as she is, with her passion, her sensitivity, her vulnerability, her explosive temper, her visceral need for my physical contact when she’s…

Sick to Death of All the Advice

Dear Sally, I’m in the middle of a pretty messy divorce. I have two kids and I’m really scared about how this is all affecting them, as well as how the custody arrangements are going to go. In addition to all this stress, I feel like my friends and family don’t really understand what I’m…

Dear Sally, What are the most transferable parenting lessons you apply when leading at work? Dear Transferable Leader, The root of the word discipline comes discipulus which means learner or pupil.
