Parenting Publications of America Awards recognizes Jeanne Blake’s Words Can Work column with a 2005 Gold Award.
“The writer does an excellent job of using stories from families facing communication problems and information from experts to show readers that there are solutions. The story is very well written with just enough anecdotes to keep the readers attention but not distract them from the point of the article. This is a very good piece of service journalism.”
