5 Links: World's Worst Mom, Glitter Bombs, Evermotion
1 - The never ending debate about kids safety vs independence became a reality show from Discovery Life
. Go behind the scenes with the New York Times article "Parenting Advice From ‘America’s Worst Mom
.’” More about the show and its star Lenore Skenazy
from Reason magazine.
2 - This video is funny
. A dad gets glitter bombed for reading his kids mail. This video is uplifting
. Kid President addresses the nation: “When life gives you lemons, you gotta make lemonade. And drink it. And then you dance.”
3 - Another New York Times link in the Well - "The Benefits of a Lunch Hour Walk
” The mood and brain-boosting benefits of a lunchtime walk are legit. Even here in bitter, frozen Vermont I make this happen most days of the week. I’m cheating a bit though - it's also to walk the dog.
4 - Here's a fun and slightly educational new coloring book about robots and computers
. Buy it for $10 or download and print pages for free.
5 - I love the new Guster album Evermotion
. Love it. The Boston Globe calls it "terrific," rooted in three key Bs — Beatles, Beach Boys, and Bacharach
. You can play it around the kids; none of the song have swears, guns or overt sex talk, just a ton of great melodies. It also sounds great through headphones, which is how I've listed to it every other hour for the past couple of weeks. http://www.guster.com
