Parents, this isn't the world you grew up in.

Anyone raising children these days must work hard to provide a stable, positive life while facing social pressures and cultural influences that didn't exist even five years ago.

This year, The News plans to publish a series of stories on parenting in today's world. We'd like to interview and consult with local parents, children, teenagers, teachers, counselors, and anyone else with an interest in children's lives and the issues affecting them.

We'd like to hear how you raise healthy, happy, well-adjusted children. What are the biggest challenges you see and how do you confront them?

If you're interested in participating, send an e-mail to or write to Parenting Series, The Buffalo News, Features Department, One News Plaza, Buffalo N.Y. 14203.

Please include your full name and a daytime phone number at which we can reach you.
