Weekend Read: Tina Fey, the NFL, Plant Science, Beautiful Science, etc
Well good day to you all! How is everyone doing this weekend:
If you’re looking for….some thoughts on breastfeeding:
Our very own Steph was interviewed over The Momivist about her thoughts on breastfeeding campaigns. Steph’s original GP article is here.
If you’re looking for….some football news:
We’re not even two weeks in to the season, and the NFL has already sparked a national conversation about domestic violence with Ray Rice. Now Adrian Peterson has been charged with reckless or negligent injury to a child. Details are still emerging, but my guess is there will be a LOT of talk about what constitutes discipline and what constitutes abuse in the coming weeks.
If you’re looking for….some Tina Fey:
Tina Fey talks about how working with Alec Baldwin improved her parenting skills. I think she’s only sort of joking. Still, it leads to an interesting conversation regarding how work can make you a better parent, and parenting can make you better at work.
If you’re looking for….some indoor plant science:
How to make an edible mini garden. There’s something about planting a plant and watching it grow that does good things to people, especially kids. No space required, just a pie pan.
If you’re looking for….some online science:
A new meta-analysis shows that turning traditional parenting classes in to online resources didn’t render them useless. This is good news for reaching those who may not have the resources to attend a class.
