Meet the Parenthackers: Stu Mark

Soon after Parent Hacks launched, Stu's comments popped off the page and into my psyche. Honest, wise, and positive...I found myself waiting to hear what he had to say, and almost always taking it to heart. He models the sort of respectful yet firm (and fun) parenting I admire. Examples: 'The problem' is the problem -- not the kid (currently #1) and Look it up!

Want more Stu? Read his blog and his posts at GNMParents.

Your favorite hack?

Oh, way, way too many to choose from. Might as well ask me to name a favorite food.
