I want to encourage the IV Press to continue the column by Elaine Heffner, LCSW, EdD. She is usually located right above Dear Abby. I really like Ms. Heffner’s guidance for parents and families. It is spot on. I teach an IVC class on Sociology of Marriage and the Family, and most newspapers have little to offer as it relates to marriage and the family.
The IV Press does OK in this area, but the San Diego Union and the L.A. Times are also both lacking. Dear Abby is in most papers daily and much of her wisdom and counsel miss the mark. Dr. Heffner’s knowledge is both research and experience based. Her choice of topics is very relevant for parents and families in the new millennium. Keep up the good work!
