Who do you trust with your children?

I keep see­ing news sto­ries about kids dying in day­care or at the hands of oth­er peo­ple to whom their par­ents have entrust­ed them, and every time there is so much shock and rage as if peo­ple can’t believe it’s hap­pen­ing. I am so tired of it. Pay atten­tion!  How many of the peo­ple in […]

What’s Private for You?

Web 2.0 is all about shar­ing and col­lab­o­ra­tion. There have been lots of sto­ries late­ly that have shown some­thing of a back­lash against that shar­ing, point­ing out how over­shar­ing makes us easy tar­gets for crim­i­nals, talk­ing about cyber­stalk­ing, etc. That’s not where I’m going. I’ve found myself think­ing recent­ly about what peo­ple don’t share, about what, […]

News Flash: Decatur Teen Comes Home Early From Date!

What a weirdo! I mean, you’d think these kids were being, I don’t know, respon­si­ble or some­thing! Just because she has an appoint­ment ear­ly in the morn­ing, she came home ear­ly.  Kids these days! I don’t think I ever got home an hour and a half before cur­few. Maybe she’s smarter than I was. Hmmm. But, really, […]

Reading

So, the Crazy Hip Blog Mamas want me to talk about what read­ing means to me or my child. How about both? You might have noticed that I talk, a lot, about read­ing. I think Now Read­ing shows at least four five of the books that I’m read­ing right now, and that’s a fair­ly nor­mal number. […]

Packaging Boyhood

From the lat­est Dads & Daugh­ters newslet­ter: Our friend Dr. Mark Tap­pan is co-author­ing a book, to be called “Pack­ag­ing Boy­hood” about mar­ket­ing to our sons. The book aims to “scru­ti­nize the world of boy pow­er, and the ways media and mar­keters’ stereo­types about how to be a man reach way down into the lives […]

Rumbles from the Recliner

Not from the grave, oh no, not yet! It’s been too long to do a real “this is all that has hap­pened in my life.” Writ­ing it would exhaust me, and read­ing it would like­ly bore you. If you want to know about some­thing in par­tic­u­lar, please ask. I’ll be post­ing a few things short­ly that […]

Another article for the wacko file

I’m post­ing this specif­i­cal­ly for leduck, who has got­ten much amuse­ment from oth­er “Indi­go Child” non­sense Alien-ated Youth Any sane per­son read­ing the arti­cle can tell that the par­ents of the “spe­cial” kids are full of fer­til­iz­er, but hey, they got to be in the news! Oh, wow! Cur­rent Mood: :-)amusedCur­rent Loca­tion: home

Midnight? Already?

Wow. It’s been almost as fun lis­ten­ing to the kids (Katie’s gang, here for her birth­day par­ty) game as it would be to be part of a game myself. Maybe I will play Vam­pire some­day. I sup­pose I’d trust Sam to run just about any­thing. They’re watch­ing some­thing now — Mir­ror­mask, it sounds like. I […]
