Alana Romain read the research on how over-praising kids causes excess stress and decided to see what directed, measured praise would do instead. Here she chronicles a week with her preschoolers:
Deborah Lytton has some great suggestions on starting a kids book club.
James Witmer explores the gift that grief is and the ways it turns us toward joy.
Tyler Leland reminds us to be people who build, no matter the destruction around us.
Over at What Do We Do All Day, they’ve got an abstract strategy game for kids called Watermelon Chess. It’s easy to learn and simple to play on the go. Check it out.
Thank you for reading. We’re on your side.
