Building a Community of Parents: An Interview with Carla Bergman

rad dad cover - Summer 2014

The latest issue of Rad Dad is out and includes an interview I did with Carla Bergman, the director of The Purple Thistle, a youth-run arts and activist centre in East Vancouver.

Rad Dad is the winner of the SF Bay Guardian’s best local zine and Utne Magazine’s Independent Media Award. The magazine strives to reflect the diverse, eclectic experience of fathering and parenting from a radical perspective.

In my interview with Carla, we discuss the perils of parenting in isolation, some easy steps folks can take to build connections with other parents (for the benefit of adults and kids alike), and how politics and parenting can mingle successfully.
