Rebuttal – How Not to Raise a Ray of Sunshine.

Rebuttal – How Not to Raise a Ray of Sunshine. Read the full article here This is one of the most absurd things I have read in quite some time. The author has decided that she would prefer her child not be included in preschool activities designed around helping others. It is stated that she hated that she was taught that she had to care all the time, and didn’t want her daughter feeling the pressure of that obligation. Then, the author turns it into a men vs. women thing for absolutely no reason, going into “Our society already...

Thoughts – Teaching empathy

Teaching empathy: Evidence-based tips for fostering empathy in children Read the base article here I believe that empathy is one of the most important human skills that we can teach our children. Empathy is not everything though, and shouldn’t be treated as such. The ability to be logical is just as important.

It’s a little frustrating that this study was not set up in a way that could help them discern why that is, though. Hopefully that trend continues.

Thoughts – Spanking can be detrimental for children’s behaviour

Thoughts – Spanking can be detrimental for children’s behaviour Read the full article here   This article really pissed me off. It’s a very misleading title. The summary at the top of the page explains the issue very clearly, and the results after that are pretty well self-explanatory from there. “Physical discipline experienced during infancy can negatively impact temperament and behaviour among children in the fifth grade and into their teenage years, new research indicates.” The part of this it seems like they are trying to gloss over is the DURING INFANCY part.
