A few little snippets of things I have seen posted this week that I really love...
How Schools Are Handling an 'Overparenting' Crisis: This piece from NPR is on point. As a parent and an educator, I think it's a must read for anyone with a child.
"Watch what happens when you go to a teacher and say, "I'd like to give my child some increased autonomy this year, so I won't be meddling in his homework and I'd like for you to hold him accountable for the consequences of his mistakes." You will have an admirer for life."
THAT TIME WHEN Natalie Maines performed on stage with Taylor Swift and it was pretty much the greatest musical return since...well, ever. Come back and make more great music Natalie (and the other Dixie Chicks!).
A friend shared THIS piece on breast milk and breast feeding this week and it's some really amazing information on the complexities of breast milk and how mind-blowing the characteristics of it really are. I love this quote,
"Like a glass of red wine, breast milk has a straightforward color and appearance, but it possesses subtleties in flavor that reflect its terroir—the mother's body. And it turns out that like any great dish of food, mother's milk holds a variety of aromas, flavors, and textures...I love the idea that even before her first encounter with solid food, her taste buds had already begun telling her that she is part of a city filled with the cuisines of many nations, a household that supports local farmers, and a Filipino family with an abiding love of pork and fermented shrimp paste."
