College tuition scares me. But notice, the lack of comment on any engineering/software grads. If anyone is still buying consumer electronics when they are just barely scraping by, then there should be jobs in making consumer electronics and the related software, right?

Why caffeine is bad for your kids - On Parenting - The Washington Post. As those who know me know - I am the uncool Mom who doesn't allow soda or sports drinks (and coffee - are you crazy!?). Water, water, water!!! I can't say enough about how important it is for kids to get enough sleep - so many kids are sleep deprived and their behaviors reflect it. Giving them caffeine is not the solution.

Nice list of wishes for her child

A motherhood wishlist
I hope I raise a child who will stick up for a kid who’s being bullied on the playground. I also hope I raise a child who, if he’s the one being bullied, fights back. Hard. Oh, and if he’s the bully? I hope he realizes that his mother, who once wore brown plastic glasses and read the phonebook on the school bus, will cause him more pain than a bully ever could.
Sounds like an awesome mom to me. :)
for the working mom
lovely reminders -- a motherhood wish list and the reasons the "Mommy Wars" are a bunch of BS.

A fascinating NY Times article on children who display a lack of empathy and sociopathic behaviors. What would it look like if therapeutic parenting techniques that work so well with kids who have attachment disorders (such as Hughes' "PACE" model) were used with these children?
