  * In Case You Missed It: Why Don't You?

* Some Things I Love:  Back to school time, school supply and first day outfit shopping with Sloane, taking first day of school pictures, that final weekend before school officially begins, popsicles, the sound of the ice cream truck, middle-of-the-night thunder storms, purple Bic cristal pens, tote bags (I have a small obsession.), and blog comments...

Happy weekend, friends.  What fun do you have planned?

I would argue that making them the center of the universe is actually terribly detrimental. A good parent prepares the child for the path, not the path for the child. We can still demonstrate gentle and attached parenting without raising children who melt on a warm day. This line rings true for me. I was a mom in the 70's, so I can't be totally objective, but I agree with the author's perspective.

Great post. Love your Friday Favs. Have I said that before?

Fascinating articles on What Mom would do. I am so proud of my daughter raising her son. He can entertain himself and loves to learn and books because he is only allowed 1/2 hour of screen time a day, he eats his veggies because that is what is expected. She is stricter than I ever was, but I can see the results of her good work. Love Pharell's Happy song.
