Welcome to a new weekly feature, a weekly round-up of some of the best boy-related blog posts on the web. Find something interesting during the week? Send me a link! You just might see it again next Friday.
On being heard — Elizabeth at Boy Crazy writes beautifully and eloquently about the need to listen to our sons, and the way their words can get lost in the busyness of our days
Lessons from the class of 2010 — Outnumbered Mom has a son graduating this week. She accompanied his senior class on a mountain hike and learned something about stragglers and leaders.
Boost kids’ summer reading — This time of year, a lot of parents are wondering how to incorporate reading into their sons’ summers. Single Parent Savings has some excellent ideas, including a link to Guys Read, Jon Sciescka’s blog. (Yep, he’s the guy who wrote The True Story of the Three Little Pigs. If you haven’t read it yet to your boys, run to the library immediately!)
Numbers right now — From the time we first count their little fingers and toes, parenthood is all about the numbers. Visit 4 little men & girly twins for a numerical snapshot in time. I’ll bet you can relate!
Can we lay off mom-judging now? Please? — Let’s face it: we’ve all felt superior, on occasion, to another mom. But as fellow boy-mom, blogger and freelance writer Denise Schipani points out, our judgements do more harm than good.
