Mothering contributor Jeremy Adam Smith speaks to the fluidity and diversity of today’s family unit in YES! Magazine’s Winter 2011 issue, “What Happy Families Know.”
From Yes! Magazine:
Marriage and family values are among America’s most polarizing political issues. But when we get down to the personal, we find that real family is mostly about taking care of each other, despite our differences. This issue of YES! Magazine takes an honest look at family and celebrates the values and choices that help us support and look after each other.
It’s a big claim to offer you “What Happy Families Know” but the stories inside the issue speak for themselves. There are personal journeys of joy, recovery, loss, and negotiation. Experts reveal years of research on what makes a happy couple (gay or straight). And, in our lead article, by Mothering ‘daddy blogger’ Jeremy Adam Smith, a stay-at-home dad tells us how fathers, mothers, gay couples, grandparents, neighbors, and multiethnic families are remaking America.
