Why I’ll Never Read Another Parenting Book
Samantha Schoech, npr.org
Last year, my husband and I were totally into giving our children grit. Why? Because we were told to, by Paul Tough’s 2013 book How Children Succeed. The book convinced us that the key to our kiddies’ success lies in character, persistence,…

Excellent article for will-be parents, or parents who struggle with how to rear and raise their children. When I first discovered that I would be a mom…I read 32 parenting books. I’m glad I did because each one had a different message and slant on discipline and family life. My biggest fear in parenting was failing my children and “messing up”. Ultimately, everyone has to make some mistakes. The key to good #parenting is consistency in #love.

Why I Write: Joan Didion on Ego, Grammar & the Impetus to Create
by Maria Popova, brainpickings.org
“Had I been blessed with even lim­it­ed access to my own mind there would have been no rea­son to write.”The ques­tion of what pro­pels cre­ators, espe­cial­ly great cre­ators, is the sub­ject of eter­nal fas­ci­na­tion and cul­tur­al…

I love this article. Frank. Fresh. My favorite line…the sentence tells you it’s meaning…you don’t tell it. The living thoughts of working writer. A writer in process. Arrogant? Yes. Narcissistic? Absolutely. Necessary. Because her inward focus forces the verbal rant connecting her world of words to ours. #amwriting

Hospitals Are Mining Patients’ Credit Card Data to Predict Who Will Get Sickbusinessweek.com
Some hospitals troll consumer databases in an effort to identify high-risk patients

This can be argued as preventative care but at the cost of patient dignify. In itself, buying trends and data are available to any seller of goods or services including healthcare. But it seems invasive of living when it’s used to trigger a contact from the doc. Seems to touch on patient respect and rights.

Great article for new #writers wishing to break into the industry. The only point that I wouldn’t agree with is the statement that friends and family are great resources for your feedback. Yes, to a degree. No, to another. No, because a writer needs to hear honest feedback and family may fear hurting a feeling or two. It’s best to get into a good critique group. #amwriting
