Welcome/Welcome Back–so good to see you here!
I’ve read so many interesting articles online this week and thought I’d share a few of them with you. The topics range from life in general, to parenting and learning–all of them I found to be positive and enriching. I hope you check out one or two– do let me know your thoughts if you do.
*Five Myths About Young People and Social Media—this is a rich, informative article I encourage all to read. Social media and the online world are here to stay, it’s time to make peace with it and understand where the kids are coming from.
*This Is What a Librarian Looks Like—even in this day of Internet and digital bookshelves, librarians are a valuable tool. This article not only includes a photo gallery of librarians with excellent quotes, it also acknowledges the value of librarians and the public library.
*“I wanted them to be like children, playing outside, running and jumping and not sitting inside at a desk” –Gold medalist Jamie Anderson’s Mom, Lauren Anderson. I enjoyed this article most of all because it’s refreshing to read about parents who sidestep mainstream philosophies and forge a path with their children, a path that works for their family.
*”The first thing I can remember buying for myself, aside from candy, of course, was not a toy. It was a book.”– this article is basically an appreciation of loving to read and how integral reading is to life.
I hope you’ll find at least one of these links to be worth your time and of interest to you. As always, I’d love to hear from you– you can post here in the comments or join the conversation over on Facebook.
