5/29/09: Articles This Week

Hello Readers,

Hope you had a great Memorial Day!

Updates on Parenting is Flat: My Next Book:  It is an extension of Thomas Friedman’s The World is Flat about how parenting has been changed by globalization and I will be doing Case Studies on a family from each continent! I have a survey readers can take to put their vote into which countries we should go to. We also have mini-questionnaires that we would be so excited for our readers from abroad to take.  We already have some great volunteers, thank you to you.  This will be such an exciting process and we are working on it with our global interns as well.
