Telling Our Kids To “Walk Up, Not Out” Isn’t Just Wrong, It’s Incredibly Dangerous

Absolutely love every bit of this. Just a few nuggets…

“it isn’t an either/or proposition”

“Walking out is a powerful political statement being made by students too young to vote, but old enough to have performed multiple lockdown drills in their school.”

“insinuating that children are responsible for mass gun violence because they simply don’t take the time to “befriend the lonely kid” is not only victim-blaming, it’s dangerous”

“Walk up to the mirror, look yourself in the eyes, and tell yourself that you’ve done everything you can to prevent the next mass shooting. And if you can’t, stop looking to the students to save themselves and start looking at yourself.”

The Value of Fasting (from Anything). And How to Get Started.

Have been trying this in various forms since around the beginning of this year. Thus far I’ve had success with abstaining from alcohol for almost 100 days, and intermittent fasting off and on. Haven’t had anything stick, but it does feel good to know that sometimes you can maintain some of that old self control… at least for a while.

Feed Your Kid Dinner at 3 P.M.

Seems like an interesting concept if you can pull it off. My only reservation is that it can cut down on “family time”, but if it means better bedtime routines then it may just be worth it.

Porn is not the worst thing on obscure social media sites

Love the reminder why my kids aren’t getting a phone or going on social media any time soon (if ever)…

“Puberty is harrowing enough in physical form, asking a child to also manage an online ego is like asking them to thread a needle while the plane is going down”

Announce the Reason You Are About to Look at Your Phone

I kind of like this idea. Even if you just announce it to yourself I think it’s a great mindful practice.

Stop Asking Your Kid About Their Day

It probably wouldn’t hurt for me to remember this. My goal is for them to want to talk to me when there really are important things weighing on their minds, and I know I did and still do tend to shut down just as described when treated the same way.
