Friendship is so important. Parenting is as well. This is why we wanted to explore the ways in which these two powerful and pervasive relationships can intersect.
Friendship and Parenting, a Motherwell original series, featuring:
The friends I made in the waiting room, by Elizabeth Michaelson Monaghan
We don’t want our boys to be “cured.” There is no cure; autism is a chronic state, like arthritis, or love.
The importance of friendship after divorce, by Lauren Apfel

Helping my son grieve the loss of a friend, by Tanya Mozias Slavin
How exactly could I break this news to a kid who already went to bed every night scared of death to the point of tears?
Accepting my friend’s son when she can’t, by Ann Wainwright
