As a sometime contributor to Christie's monthly column, and a big fan of her hockey mom-ness in general, I was thrilled to be asked, along with other knowledge, funny, and grounded hockey parents, to contribute to her new book My Kids Plays Hockey, essential advice for every hockey parent.
Drawing on her twenty years in the youth hockey trenches, Christie Casciano Burns brings a wit and wisdom that comes with spending countless hours in the rink. Mixing in a little cutting humor and some good old-fashioned motherly advice, the chapters in My Kids Play Hockey) speak to and for grizzled veterans and newcomers to the sport alike.
