I was driving home after teaching one Sunday and listening to the TED Radio Hour. Hosted by Guy Raz, the show features a few TED talks each week, woven together thematically in often surprising ways.

My friend Monica at High Heels and High Chairs (Do you read her blog? You should.) posted a link to the story about Facebook’s “research” on whether news feeds affect what users post.

I finished a great parenting book a few weeks ago and I’ve been wanting to tell you all about it, but I needed to let the messages marinate and settle a bit before I wrote about it. It’s by Dr. Laura Markham of Aha! Parenting, and if you don’t follow her on social media, do, […]
