Johnny's Corner
People Places Politics Principles Parenting Projects Paraphernalia Poetry


 In 1977, after we had lived here a year, a friend and I began a pre-school. It was a struggle at first, but it became successful. In  connection with pre-school (Viburnum's Learning Tree), we had conferences with the parents. It turned out we were saying  many of the same things over and over to different parents, so I thought of writing a weekly article for our local paper. It was  called "Parents' Corner," and I included ideas I gained from reading or conferences or observation. It morphed, after twenty years or so, into Johnny's Corner, which ran for years in the Quad County Star, and for awhile in The Steelville Star.
