Winter Editor's Letter
A look into a person’s Google search history can reveal many things. Mine can tell you that I don’t know much about algebra or world history. When my girls come to me needing homework help, more often than not, Google is what helps them with their homework. My history also can tell you we recently purchased a car and that we have a new driver in the house. Check the search history of new parents and, after about two minutes, you’ll be able to tell there’s a new baby in the house. These little people come with so many questions and no instruction manual. Being overwhelmed by all those questions is all too easy. Local mom Lauren Cook takes a lighthearted look at a new mom’s Google searches and questions. Remember, new moms and dads, you got this!
