Every once in a while, the internet can feel like a source of shame or just a waste of time. When I’m tempted to throw in my virtual towel and bail on the technology world, I challenge myself to find something uplifting and useful online. Here’s what I’ve found around the web this week.
- The founder of one of my favorite podcasts of all time has a new book, but even more exciting to NPR-nerd me: She was interviewed on Fresh Air this week on childbirth injuries, parenting, and working motherhood.
- I quoted Alison Faulkner (from her podcast episode 66) on my Instagram stories this week, but I’ll leave it here too: You cannot negatively think your way to positive results. Hear, hear.
- If you haven’t read Braving the Wilderness yet, this article is a great primer, focusing on why group processing can be so powerful and empowering.
- I used to think all the kids’ resilience tools from Sesame Street were cheesy and ineffective. Then I had my own kids – and ya’ll they are BRILLIANT.
- The parenting questions in this ethics column are fascinating. The first is especially humbling, and the second a bit heartbreaking.
Have a beautiful weekend, and thank you so much for being here.
