On the Spectrum: Stoic Strategies for Parenting and Mental Health

I wrote a post for Brittany Polat’s Stoic Care website on being a practicing Stoic and being neurodivergent:

It’s a typical weekday, and I’m trying to get my five-year-old son and two-year-old daughter to keep their masks on before they start licking the floor of the Monroe County YMCA. I’m trying to sign them up for swim lessons. This is the second of two errands I’m running in the hour window we have using our one family car on Christmas Eve. We dropped my wife off at vaccinated-only yoga in Bloomington, Indiana’s Fountain Square. Then we ran to the post office to send Christmas presents to her family members in Michigan that we won’t see this holiday season. And we have no childcare for two weeks as my kids’ pre-school is closed for the holiday season.

I’ll also be appearing at the April 23 Stoics Care Conference. It’s free and open to the public. Register here.
