So true and note to self: LEARN.
Because… why not.
For those of you with daughters, nieces or granddaughters… this is an interesting article on interacting with young girls. Our usual instinct is to say “oh! You’re so cute/pretty!” What are you setting them up for in the future?
Having a daughter myself I realize how often I glow as a parent when someone says my kiddo’s cute. But now I’m even more aware of nurturing her intellect/problem solving skills instead of her “cuteness”.
This is kinda crazy… A new species of whale has been discovered! Found recently at a California construction site, these whale bones are being studied and more information will be released later this year.

I just read this article about Norway and their perspective on prison-life to real life transition. I gotta say, the logic behind their system is actually pretty sound. And, with the lowest re-offending rates in the world, it’s gotta speak for its self right?
Maybe we can learn something from this model.
