Coming early this week, because I’ve got a frantically busy day tomorrow.
Because women out enjoying themselves, without men, must, simply must, be brought to their senses: My Dinner with Carol, Julie, Lyn and Hannah – or How a highly-paid attorney hijacked a pleasant evening. (H/T: Dr Cat)
Classics : Lady and the Tramp (1955) and Benji (1974): How Disney (and others) teach children that living in a nice suburban home beats living free in the city.
Reclaiming the m-word: mothering
Stadlen distils mothering down to two styles … “Spartan” (routines, making your child fit in with social expectations) and “Athenian” (listening to your child, understanding them).
Hey lady? Why does courtesy have to have anything to do with gender at all? Couldn’t you just teach your child to be polite to everyone?
