Links You’ll Want to Bookmark

by , posted on January 7th, 2011 in News


Today on Twitter, some friends* sent me links that deserve, nay, begged to be passed on. Bookmark them, save them in your tabs, do whatever works for you, but set aside some time tonight to read them.

The first is a New York Times article about the movement to restore play. It’s given me a great deal of hope for the future and is a must read for any family.

Next up is a piece inhabitots did on Digital Story Telling. You know how I love some good storytelling exercises. And this is especially timely as my daughter dreams of producing a craft show for kids.

And last up is a piece about how children give parents the power to change. I found it inspiring and loved the positive view of the parent/child dynamic.

Before I go, I want to leave you with this observation: last night, one of the news programs dedicated an episode to celebrity diets, and today Gywneth’s Goop arrived in my inbox praising a cleanse/detoxifying diet for the new year.

This year, I say we make a resolution to commit to cleanse and detoxify something that has a real and meaningful impact on our future—our children’s play.


*A very special thank you to Erica and Molly for the links.
