Really, what I love most about Dr. Wendy Sue Swanson is her magnetic, charismatic personality. I get that she's a top kids' doc, as well a parenting expert who somehow finds time to write a regular blog (Seattle Mama Doc) for Seattle Children's Hospital, be a spokesperson for the American Academy of Pediatrics and appear on news shows and talk programs. She's also a dynamic speaker - don't miss her talk on March 21 at Meydenbauer Center in Bellevue - who sounds off on (among other things) how to pull it all together when you're a working mom.
She should know. The mom of two small boys, Swanson told me (at a very fun coffee last week) she works a 60 hour week. That day, she was worried about one of her sons, who had the flu. She has opinions on just about everything -- about the way parents today rely too much on experts for advice, about hyperparenting, about giving your kids nutritious, healthy food. It's the way she imparts that info that's mesmerizing...you really want to just hear more.
The good news: You can. Join us (I'll be there) on the 21st to hear Seattle Mama Doc discuss the home/work balance, making smart decisions for our kids and much, much more.
