Great Reads from Elsewhere

  • Cancer
    A man I met digitally through a "Dad Bloggers" Facebook group he founded, and then later in person at the Dad Summit in the states has recently been diagnosed with cancer. Though we have had very few personal interactions, I consider him a friend. He published this post moments ago. It is simply called "Cancer." Its lessons are so plain it's a wonder we need to be reminded of them. If you have the time (which, after reading this you will realize we all do), absorb every word:
  • Stuck in the Middle with You: Parenting Your Teen After Graduation
    A great article from giving concrete tips on guiding your budding adult through the post-grad minefield.
  • Former Seattle daycare teacher encourages 'Duct Tape Parenting'
    No, the duct tape is NOT for the kids...
  • Parenting to Boost Executive Function
    Katherine Eskovitz explains research which argues in favor of developing your child's inner CEO, and against placing too much emphasis on I.Q.
  • Is Having a Baby Really Worth It?
    Caroline Beaulieu's article from the Huffington Post - no truer words were ever spoken about parenthood.
  • I'm Not a SuperMom

  • Helicopter Parents vs Cotton Wool Kids
    Nancy McDermott from "Spiked" reviews a new book: "Parenting Culture Studies" - produced by researchers at the Centre for Parenting Culture Studies (CPCS) at the University of Kent. Fascinating, and unexpected, revelations about what works - and doesn't - in the world of parenting.
  • Wait Until You Become a Parent
    Some unexpected gut-wrenching revelations from Lexie Lane at Not at all what you'd expect from the title.
  • How Your Bitter Divorce Broke Us Children
    An brutally honest look at the long-term effects on children of an ugly marriage and a bitter divorce.
    Kudos to B.K Mullen. One of the few dads out there ready to publicly discuss their choices to lead a healthier lifestyle. This is his first diet journal.
