5 big things parents get wrong about potty training

While some aspects of parenting little ones have gotten easier over the years, thanks to baby food makers, nursing stations in airports, and 24/7 streaming cartoons (ha), potty training is one thing that remains a major source of stress and frustration for so many parents. One of the challenges is that there are so many […]

Remainders: From Parking Garages to Political Contributions

It’s been awhile since I did one of these Remainders posts so I figured I’d throw one together. In theory it’s all the other stuff I didn’t get a chance to blog about. In reality, it’s pretty much everything I’ve been reading that isn’t about mental models/frameworks (and even some of that). You can find previous versions filed under Remainders and, as always, if you enjoy this stuff please subscribe by email and pass around. Let’s start with some books. Here’s what I’ve read in the last three m...

How to Have a Minimalist, Meaningful Holiday Season—And Why It’s So Important

It’s very easy to feel very stressed over the holiday season. After all, there’s so much to do on top of our regular responsibilities. There’s also pressure to have a perfect holiday—and to give lots and lots of presents, which for many of us busts budgets and creates or deepens debt. And if you’re doing all the shopping, wrapping, cooking and cleaning, you may feel more resentment than joy. This is where minimalism can help. People have many misconceptions about minimalism—it’s stark, sterile...

How to Create a Realistic Birth Plan

Sarah Austin wanted to have an unmedicated vaginal delivery, so she and her partner wrote a two-page birth plan at the urging of their nurse midwife. Included in it was the possibility that she might have a caesarean, and how she hoped it would be handled if so. “I considered a C-section not the desired outcome,” says…Read more...

Teaching Your Child Body Positivity

Today’s society has an image-driven culture that focuses on unrealistic standards of beauty for people of all genders, ages, and ethnicities. These standards not only have a negative impact on adults but are impacting children with alarming consequences. Eating disorders among children have increased significantly in the past 20 years. While the greatest prevalence is among adolescents ages 13 to 18, children as young as 5 years old are dieting. More than ever, it’s important to teach children ...

I’m Going to Screw Up So Many Times

Dear kids, Yeah, so I’ve been losing it the last few days. I know, you know, we all know. Some of it is hormones, some of it is just trying to figure out how to work (write) and raise you all well and keep a decently cleaned home, homeschool you, and make dinner instead of ordering pizza — again. I’m sorry, but I’m in this weird place of trying to figure it all out. I’m trying to figure out how to discipline you all so you listen and honor me and my words and for gosh sakes STAY IN BED. I’m tryi...

Teach Your Kids Empathy With These Old-School Chapter Books 

I began to plow through chapter books almost as soon as I could read, and I distinctly remember a handful of “a-ha” moments while submerged in these novels. These moments occurred as I read about experiences I’d never had and people I never knew (I grew up in a pretty homogenous bubble—lots of white, Christian…Read more...

Sharing the Santa Secret

The magic of Santa is within all who believe. I’ve always felt that and I’ve always believed that in my heart. Christmas is about so many incredible things, but Santa – for kids – is the “big” one.  Sharing the Santa Secret isn’t easy or isn’t something that any parent necessarily wants to do, but there does come a point in time when it’s something that just needs to be done. I’ll never forget confirming the news to my oldest son William. He was 10 years old and on a swim team with some older ...

How NOT to Talk to Kids About Politics

Talking to our kids about politics has never felt as tricky as it has during the past couple of years.
