Here are some of my favourite links from the past few weeks — articles, posts, and pictures that I wanted to share with you for some weekend reading!
I have so much respect for Lauren from Canberra Mummy speaking out about her experiences as an adult with a stutter. I hope her honesty helps others.
Why we should all be engaging in hands-on art — it’s not just for the kids!
The Atlantic has a great article on the Finnish approach to structuring the school day, reminding us that breaks and rhythm have a huge impact on the day’s outcomes.
I’ll be completely honest here: my preschooler is having a hard time adjusting to our move and all of the changes. All of her classmates are moving on to kindergarten and grade 1, and I’m keeping her at home — but that’s a post for another time! I’m finding revisiting Janet Lansbury’s blog to be really encouraging and helpful. The best part of this post is the comment section — check out the different interpretations that parents came to of Janet’s wisdom, and her feedback. I also liked the reminder to allow our children to experience the ups and downs of life — I definitely want to shelter my daughter from hurt, so I need gentle reminders like this.
Jessica has my exact thoughts on the “you have as many hours in the day as Beyonce” motivational quote that has been floating around social media.
I love this sweet art installation — it’s what I think will become of my child one day.
Amanda Morgan approaches a sensitive topic, but I think it’s worth considering what our responses will be and how our children will receive them.
And, for my final post, I loved this refreshing and hilarious kitchen tour by Glennon over at Momastery in a world that seems obsessed with pin-worthy spaces.
