What We’re Hearing
A weekly round-up of posts we came across that helped us, inspired us or just made us feel something meaningful.
Kidlutions printable: A print-out with mood-lifting colors and friendly reminders on how to be the best parent you can possibly be.
Twitter chat: The Mother Company hosted a chat about discipline and our kids. The turn-out was huge, and the discussion robust and informative. Our experts included Amy McCready, Dr. Susan Newman and Wendy Young who offered up helpful tips on how best to discipline our kids. Surprise guests included Dr. Lynne Kennedy, Sue Atkins and Dr. Beth Onufrak.
The Naked Truth: An article with Dr. Laura Berman about how to discuss with our children their private parts and nakedness. Timely these days, since young children prefer their birthday suits when the weather heats up!
