Smartmom’s kids have dropped a momshell!
Teen Spirit and the Oh So Feisty One — the beloved columnist’s over-exposed offspring, are in open revolt, claiming that The Brooklyn Paper’s star parenting writer is exploiting their growing pains for personal gain.
The charge, as Smartmom writes in this week’s Brooklyn Paper, has shaken the tell-all columnist to her core.
But just as fish gotta swim and birds gotta fly, Smartmom vows to keep delivering the gory details of life on Third Street — warts and all.
“If she can’t write about her kids, she’ll be done for. Finished,” the columnist wrote.
That’s great news for fans of Louise Crawford’s award-nominated column, but what of the children? What…of…the…children?
Just minutes after this week’s column was posted online at BrooklynPaper.com, readers started weighing in with comments:
“I have always thought you crossed the line when it came to your kids,” post “anothermom” from Midwood. “I have wondered why it hasn’t come to a head sooner.”
If the opinion of one Park Slope reader, who understandably chose to remain anonymous, is any indication, Smartmom’s problems might not end with her family.
“I know plenty of people in the neighborhood who are afraid to talk to Smartmom when they see her for fear that whatever they say will end up in her column,” said the reader. “Then again, I can’t help myself and read it anyway.”
So what’s your opinion on our columnist’s crisis? Weigh in below.
