Lunchbox Love Notes
Lia Prewitt-Martin is a mom, a writer, and a comedian who, when she encountered the perils of getting an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) for her son, couldn’t help but laugh.
If you have the kind of kid who has not seamlessly entered into the classroom and you are having doubts about receiving that Harvard acceptance letter you once envisioned for him, this book is for you. I wrote this guide to let you know you’re not alone. Contrary to how it may seem to others, you are not a bad parent or even a mediocre parent. You are the parent of a unique child. I have good news for you: there are tools and techniques that may help your child despite the challenges in school. In the pages of my guide, I will share some interesting facts about one of my son’s particular issues, ADHD. But more than anything, I will provide an honest, intimate account of my struggle to get my son an IEP (individuated education plan). It is my sincere hope, in these pages, you will be able to gather helpful information, feel supported and have a few good laughs. If you feel like you’re standing on a windowsill, without a safety net to catch you if you make a misstep, I'm right there with you. While I don’t have all of the answers, I’m willing to give you what I do have: resources, encouragement and something kinda funny.

I have been asked on more than one occasion if I’ve written anything[…]
Adapted from New Mom, April 12, 2011 This morning, I realized why my relationship with my 4 year old son seems so familiar. He was headed toward one of those dreaded temper tantrums and I snatched him up so quickly his heart started beating as if he were in fight or flight mode. Yes, I[…]
Adapted from La Mediocre Mommy, May 1, 2013 Yesterday, I jotted down thoughts instead of trying to attack my spec re-write head on. It was an early out of school day for our son so, after running a couple of errands, it was time to pick him up. That’s when the creativity comes in. Now[…]
Adapted from La Mediocre Mommy, May 2, 2013 The expression, “throw in the towel,” is derived from boxing. After a boxer has suffered an unrecoverable beating and his corner wants to the fight to stop, the towel is thrown in to indicate concession. In that scenario, the gesture is equal to admitting defeat. But throwing[…]
