Do you have a scary story to share about the hurdles you’ve faced raising children? Help collect real life stories about how scary it is to raise a child without adequate family-friendly policies. We’ve found that sharing true stories about the hurdles we face with parenting--from overly expensive healthcare and childcare, to a lack of time with children when they are born or sick--bring the issues to life better than any fact sheet could. Please share your story on our blog by scrolling down this blog page to "Post a Comment." Do tell! And, don't forget to click Post a Comment when you're done writing. (After you've submitted your story here, please also consider letting us know at if we can contact you in the future to share your story with leaders and possibly the media.)
