Each week, so many interesting reads come across my feed that I want to share. It is truly impossibly difficult to sometimes choose which ones to include here.
Right now, my day in brief review so far, I am in the midst of doing laundry and there are six minutes left in the last cycle so, here I am blogging.
I have managed to complete some morning chores, making beds, straightening up, grocery shopping and dish doing along with some phone calls while driving.
This week, the news has been horrible particularly the last 24 hours. A commercial jet blown out of the air without warning is a horrendous tragedy for the world and especially for the family and friends of those killed while simply flying from Amsterdam to Malaysia.

How do you answer your grandchildren and children’s questions about things they are hearing on television concerning various tragic stories and serious world events. The Mother Company offers some suggestions:
Many of us keep the news away from our young children, though those with family and friends directly affected by tragic events don’t have that luxury. None of us want our children to live in fear, but we know they need to be prepared and have some understanding of how the world works.
Are we experiencing a modern parenting crisis? A British nanny believes that we are and she suggests 5 reasons for the cause of this crisis.
I generally am quite an optimistic person. I tend to believe that everything will work out for the best unless the evidence is overwhelmingly to the contrary, and anyone who knows me will tell you that I am not prone to drama. That’s why when I say that modern parenting is in serious trouble — crisis, even — I hope you’ll listen, and listen carefully. I’ve worked with children and their parents across two continents and two decades, and what I’ve seen in recent years alarms me. Here are the greatest problems, as I see them:

I just wanted to say that I really agree with your analysis of the “modern parenting crisis”. I especially liked you’re response to the loss of the village. As a frequent babysitter, I can attest to the fact that so many parents are inherently distrustful of other people due to stranger danger. However, I feel that due to this, we have lost the village to an extent because parents prefer to mind their own business than to help other parents. I think most parents would even take an offer to help as an insult to their own parenting ability, at least in my community.
