I haven’t given as much in-depth thought to parenting styles as Molly has. But ater reading Gentle Parenting: A Tale of Three Markers, I could definitely tell you in which direction I tend to falter.

Maybe I’ll just keep it bookmarked. (Thanks for the link, Jeni.)
The first thing that impressed me about this story is that there’s such a thing as underwater archaeology. The second? Someone found what looks to be a Stonehenge Beneath the Waters of Lake Michigan. Dude. That’s crazy. (via kottke.org.)
