Since my fingers are literally aching from all of the writing I’m doing lately (not to mention my mushy brain…..apparently I haven’t worked this hard in a very long time ; ), I decided to post links to 3 AMAZING articles that caught my attention recently. They are all brilliantly written and thought-provoking so check them out when you have a chance.
First up is a piece by Michelle over at So Wonderful, So Marvelous called “Moms, When Are You Going to Learn?”. This is a must-read for every mom/woman/person on the planet about how harshly we judge each other and ourselves.
My friend Alyson Schafer wrote the next piece for Parent Dish on “Bullying, Why Canada has a Serious Problem” and it’s likely not for the reasons you are thinking. Alyson postulates that it’s all about the distribution of power between adults and children and she is calling for a change in our thinking and in our relationships with kids from the top down. Powerful stuff!
And finally my favourite blogging doctor Yoni Freedoff’s piece for US News and World Report called “Please Stop Asking Your Children to Finish Their Milk” with some startling facts about the dairy industry.
