We won! Conversations With My Mother is very excitedamex to be a winner of the American Express Passion Project Award!

“Conversations with My Mother” is one of the most unique parenting blogs I’ve ever read. Molly Skyar is a mom of two young kids, and Molly’s mom is a clinical psychologist. Together they tackle tough questions from blog readers covering all aspects of parenting with lively and opinionated dialog. One of my favorite recent answers, “No, no, no, and no,” followed by elaboration and explanation. The interplay between an experienced, thoughtful mom, and a skilled and insightful psychologist is fantastic. I’ve learned a lot from Molly and Dr. Rutherford.”

No Regrets Parenting – Turning Long Days and Short Years into Cherished Moments with Your Kids

“I asked Molly how to soothe my four-year-old’s anxiety about pre-school, and the advice her mother provided was spot on! Not only did implementing her suggestions help our son, but my wife and I found ourselves feeling less stressed over what had previously seemed a huge parenting conundrum. Reading Dr. Rutherford’s words of wisdom helped us regain perspective, and maintain a positive attitude. My son starts school in two weeks and he can’t wait! We’re really grateful for the help we obtained on Conversations with My Mother.”

Brian Gresko, editor of When I First Held You: 22 Critically Acclaimed Writers on Fatherhood, and parenting columnist for Babble.
