I’ve been working in education and childcare, officially and unofficially, for the past twelve years. Aside from my personal love of books, it is what drove me to become a a youth services librarian. My interest and love for youth engagement and academic achievement is something that is behind most every decision and viewpoint that I have. Because of this, it is often even rougher to not be a parent. Rougher still when people make distinctions.
It is the conundrum of being Parental, but not a Parent.
