It turns out that there are sometimes problems more pressing than Apple's plans for FCPX, or ARRIRAW worfklow for DaVinci Resolve. Fast, authoritative answers to these kinds of questions are at the heart of what CreativeCOW.net has been providing for a dozen years, but the real problems aren't always at work: sometimes, they're at home.

Kylee Wall is among the members of Creative COW thinking about adding kids to her family. Hundreds of thousands of the 2 million people who pass through CreativeCOW.net every month already have kids, of course, but we still very rarely talk about family issues with our production and post-production peers. Kylee is taking steps to address this with her new series, "Parenthood In Production And Post," starting with "Being An Editor Dad." Readers -- and there are a lot of them -- are already responding strongly to the series, both in the COW and across Twitter, Facebook and beyond. Take a look for yourself, and continue the conversation about what really matters.
