A Few Things...
Just a few things I've bookmarked recently... Have a fabulous weekend!
How to raise kinder, less entitled kids (according to science). This article from The Washington Post doesn't share anything I didn't already know, but it's still a good reminder. It can be difficult to think of all the things we do that influence the way our kids learn and behave and think about the world. Especially when you do some things differently than the families around you, it's good to hear the message that you're doing the right thing. (Or to be given the gentle nudge that maybe there's a better way.)
Blue Feed, Red Feed. I hope most people know they live in a bubble most of the time. This is a good tool to review and see how differently people can receive information from social media sites. I'm helped by some conservative family and friends, but I still consciously watch/read Fox News sometimes in order to get a different perspective. It's painful, but it's important. I wish we didn't keep pushing everyone to the extremes.
What Teens Need Most From Their Parents. As you can tell, I'm drawn to articles and studies on parenting. I want to get it right. This one is interesting and serves as a reminder that teenagers need more, not less, attention from their parents.
The World's Oldest Yoga Teacher Has Some Advice. This woman is worth looking at for the pictures alone. They certainly inspire me to continue to improve in my yoga practice. But the words about all of the benefits of yoga inspire me too.
My President Was Black. A history of the first African American White House--and of what came next. A really long but worthwhile read about President Obama.
In Which I am a Little Bit of a Wimp. I loved this blog post from Tania Kindersley. I found myself nodding at several points while reading. The desire to be kind and to see progress without being a fighter myself.
