Shannan Younger

Member of the Chicago Parent Blog Network

Although she'd like to be taller and have more time to dive into good books, Shannan is awfully happy with her life in the western suburbs, where she moved after a decade of living on the north side of the city. She blogs about parenting a tween at Tween Us on ChicagoNow and at Families in the Loop and was honored to be in the 2013 Chicago cast of Listen to Your Mother. A recovering attorney who works at a small nonprofit, she was excited to be quoted by the BBC, but hoping that they come back again soon to talk about something other than Justin Bieber.
