I recently identified a new genre of movie, the Parent-Child Romantic Comedy, and an analysis of these films helped me understand something about being a parent.
My essay was published on the New York Times Motherlode blog here: http://nyti.ms/1wwP0qi
Second favorite reaction to my essay: “That was yours? I saw that in a friend’s Facebook status.”
Favorite reaction: “I liked your essay; it made me realize what a terrible parent I am.”
