  1. Yay Alissa! I will read this with pleasure.

    Do you know Deborah Lupton’s work on risk? It’s good, good stuff. And it might be relevant to your enterprise here…

    Alyssa: Thanks for the mention of Ometz Parlour groups! Much like your experience, we see hundreds of parents learning from each other, supporting each other and laughing together! I share your interest in building networks for parents.
