Top 5 reading list for parents 4/3-4/10

by ParentCo. April 10, 2015

Louis CK writes, directs, edits, and stars in every episode of his hit show. Season 5 just started, and we're currently on a bender of reading every single word he has to say. This interview, from the Hollywood Reporter, Louis C.K.'s Crabby, Epic Love Letter to NYC is totally worth your 5 minutes.  I have literally tens of thousands of photos of my kids. Smiling, not even remotely smiling, their feet, their busy hands, in action, and still as statues. But I only have a handful of photos they've taken. This article, from the Matador Network was a great reminder of an overlooked way to spark their creativity.

Last week, Facebook announced their new Scrapbook feature. This article from John Patrick Pullen for Time "Why Facebook's Scrapbook is Bad for Your Baby" echoes our sentiments. "In the words of Admiral Ackbar, 'It's a trap!'" If there's anything you can learn from kids, it's the value of a nap. You should post this great infographic and accompanying article from Higher Perspective in your office. George Costanza would approve. Experience to Learn : Get them up. Get them moving. Make them smarter.
