Dr. Maryanne J. Kane

Attached to this page are articles I wrote for NEWSWEEK magazine, prior to Covid 19. At first I was going to take the articles down, thinking them non-revelant. But, guess what? I sincerely believe some of the points are very much still important today. Parents, what do you think?
