This was big news because the 29-year-old AOC is famous for her skilled leverage of these platforms to connect with her constituents and drive the national conversation on issues she cares about. What captured my attention more recently, however, is the apparent disconnect between th...

Digital Minimalism and Sports

Your browser does not support iframes. A couple weeks ago, I posted an article in reaction to the news that the head coach of the Arizona Cardinals now allows his players to take “phone breaks” during their team meetings. “You start to see kind of hands twitching and legs shaking, and you know they need to get that social media fix,” he helpfully explained. If you’re one of the many readers who joined me in thinking this move was a shortsighted capitulation, I’m hoping to help improve...

Digital Minimalism and God (Or, is Social Media Undermining Religion?)

Photo by Oliver Sjöström from Pexels Those who know Martin Luther King Jr.’s story well, know that January 27, 1956, was a pivotal date for the young minister. Only one month earlier, still a newcomer in town, King, to his surprise, was elected to run the Montgomery Improvement Association (MIA) formed in response to Rosa Parks’s arrest. As King’s Pulitzer-prize winning biographer David Garrow recalls, King “mistakenly presumed that the boycott [organized by the MIA] would be relati...

Why Divorce May Hurt Wealthier Kids’ Education the Most, According to a New Study

It has long been known that children whose parents split up have lower educational prospects than those whose parents stay together.

Paper Mania

Paper clutter drives me crazy, which is probably why I eventually settled on a homeschooling philosophy that doesn’t require a lot of paper. We use worksheets and pre-fabricated lesson material as little as possible, but for those few subjects, a spiral binding machine is my best best friend.  I spiral bind all our math worksheets (for […]
