Editor's Note

March/April 2021
This special edition of the Networker came together because of the great love so many people feel for Rich. Most of them don’t have bylines here, and some of them had never even met him in person. As soon as we put out word of his death, the messages poured in from people wanting to celebrate his inimitable “Rich-ness” and convey how deeply he influenced their work. We couldn’t possibly include them all here, but, in a very real way, everyone who cared for Rich and the community he created has inspired this issue. It’s one we never dreamed we’d have to put together, but we hope it captures his buoyant spirit, his quiet bravery, and his enormous heart.

Editor's Note

January/February 2021
Part of honoring our founder and longtime editor, Rich Simon, who passed away in November, has been to complete this issue, which explores how our current pandemic reality is affecting kids and their caregivers. As we crafted this issue together throughout the fall, we often wondered whether the challenges of 2020 would still feel relevant as 2021 arrived. Sadly, many of the questions our authors explore have become even more pressing now. 

Will the crisis we’re grappling with spur us to develop new approaches for supporting anxious kids, underserved kids, and overwhelmed schools and parents? Can we create more effective ways to help families? These challenges might seem overwhelming, but as Rich regularly reminded us, we don’t need to come up with all the answers: what’s important is that we keep asking the questions.
