The Good Men Project

A blog post from November 14, How We Talk to Kids, was just featured over at The Good Men Project, a really cool website that focuses on what it means to be a good man in the 21st century.  Go check ’em out!  They’ve got a lot of really great content.  Right now, for example, there’s a great article on marriage called Be Kind to Each Other and another called Parenting Without Gender Expectations Means Accepting All Outcomes

If you’ve clicked over to A Family in the City from The Good Men Project, welcome!  Kick off your shoes and make yourself comfortable.   I hope you find something you enjoy here!

  1. Hi Ben,

    I actually did find you via The Good Men Project, and your piece absolutely resonated with me.

    I wanted to get in touch because of your bio – hearing that your daughter was diagnosed with Arthritis struck a chord as I was diagnosed at age 6. I am now 41, struggle with it every day, and reach out to kids living with the disease and their parents whenever I can.

    I have had a successful career as a broadcast and print journalist, have done a lot of public speaking about how my career developed in spite of my physical limitations, have become a mom, and now have a great online store…

    I am now old enough to have perspective on how my parents reacted and dealt with my disease, and think about this a great deal.

    If you’d ever like to talk about anything related, please feel free to email me!


    1. I’m glad you liked the post – and thanks for reaching out! Arthritis is definitely an illness that requires parents to approach it thoughtfully. We’re fortunate to have a great team at Boston Children’s Hospital. They do a wonderful job providing emotional support alongside medical treatment. Cate will love hearing about an adult who grew up with arthritis who’s found success and happiness!
