Happy New Year 2012!

Hi there, skating-person. I use this term rather than skater, because despite what those sitting on the couch watching US nationals this month might think, figure skating (and ice dancing, obviously) is about so much more than just a skater.

How to: Be Fair To Your Non-Skaters

You're probably not superbly rich, but you probably do have more than one child. That's the sort of household I grew up in, and I'm guessing I'm not the only skater from a working class family whose parents juggled skating with the whole other realm that is family life.

Yes, it would be lovely indeed, to call Jeeves to collect Skating-Sister from school, cook her dinner, help with homework, make that crafts project, and keep a watchful eye on the friends she has over. But I didn't live in fantasy-dream-land, and chances you don't either!
