Weekend Reads: Kids and Veggies, Same Sex Parents, Teenage Malaise, Etc
Why hello hello! In my most current weekend reads tradition, I would like to again complain about the snow. It’s terrible. My 6.5 ft fence in my back yard now appears to be about a foot tall. I went in to the office twice this week and spent about 10 hours commuting. This is ridiculous. Anybody want to recommend a state with good weather? Anyway, on with the weekend reads!
If you’re looking for….a way to get your kids eating veggies:
The Eat This folks have some science on that for you.
If you’re looking for….some measles outrage:
If you’re looking for….a primer on urgent care vs ER:
Nothing groundbreaking, but always useful. I spent 5 years working in an ER, and knowing where to go for what is one of the handier skills I got out of it.
If you’re looking for….the data about same-sex parents:
Here’s a round up thus far. Two new studies came out this week, and they contradicted each other. Slate helps you make sense of it all.
If you’re looking for….a guide to blocks:
Try blocks for the science minded. Interesting take.
If you’re looking for….a guide to teenage laziness:
If you’re looking for….a playground:
Not all are created equal. Interesting take on the design of playgrounds.
