How about a working children blog?

Stephen Baker

I'm in Portland dealing with a couple of 90-something parents, dealing with some very tough decisions about their independence. I'm thinking that in addition to a Working Parents blog, we should have one for working parents parenting their parents. Anyone know of a good one out there? There must be 10 million boomers dealing with almost exactly the same issues.

One thing I cannot do on this Ecto connection to the blog is approve comments. I have outsourced that work this weekend to my 13-year-old back in New Jersey, and I see he's already accomplished it once. If you've left a comment and you don't see it pop up immediately, he's probably out having fun.

Interesting idea for a weblog. You're right; I get phone calls all day from folks looking for companion care for their elderly parents who need to be looked after while they are at work.

Who provides quality care? Bargain care for bargain prices? What does each service do, and how much does it cost? It's just one of the issues that needs to be looked at, and there are few resources at which to point.

A working children's blog would be great. Don't know of any off the top of my head. But I too have elderly parents and would love some thoughts, insights into how to best handle the situation.
