A few things I've been reading lately.
Why parents need to let their children fail, The Atlantic (Jan .29, 2013), via Not Just Cute
Frustration and Rage, Conscious Transitions (Jan. 14, 2013)
Really great article on patience and parenting with little ones.
Why introverts shouldn't be forced to talk in class, Washington Post
Great article, with teacher tips on other methods of group participation besides raising your hand and giving a verbal answer.
