Parenting: What’s Right and What’s Wrong?
News from Chabad.org:

In the beginning of Genesis, G?d creates Man and Woman, placing them in Paradise. G?d tells them that they can eat from all the trees they see, except for two: the Tree of Knowledge and the Tree of Life. As you probably know, Woman and then Man both eat from the forbidden Tree of Knowledge, and their utopian world comes to an end. Both are “cursed” with mortality, and there are several other repercussions as well.

I put “cursed” in quotes because G?dUtopian world comes to an end doesn’t just mete out random punishments in reaction to our bad deeds. He simply allows us to suffer our own consequences. It’s just like if a baby were to touch a hot stove as his mother exclaims, “No!”—and then he burns his hand. The baby might feel that he was punished, because he doesn’t understand the connection between cause and effect. All he knows is he was yelled at and then he got hurt. But any older child or adult understa…………… continues on Chabad.org

South Bay Parenting: World Cup fever? Wake me when the NFL season starts

South Bay Parenting: World Cup fever? Wake me when the NFL season starts
News from Daily Breeze:

By Renee Moilanen

These days, it’s hard to go anywhere without seeing the World Cup.

The games are on everywhere. Bars, restaurants, the gym, other obvious television watching locations — sure. But when the nail salon is swapping daytime talk shows for soccer matches and when my dentist is trotting out a portable TV to appease soccer-hungry patients in the waiting room, it’s clear the country has been gripped by World Cup fever.

I’ve tried to jump on the soccer bandwagon, falling in line with other Americans who’ve suddenly embraced the world’s most popular sport even if they spurned it just months ago. Americans love a big sports event no matter the type, especially if it pits our country against others and gives us a chance to chant “U.S.A., U.S.A.” in red, white and blue face paint.

But I can’t muster the same passion for soccer as I have for football, that decidedly American sport with its military-like advancement strategy, gratuitous allocation of points — stick three on the board just for copping out with a field goal — and quick bursts of action followed by lots of lagging about, a methodical pace no one seems willing to change. Football is a sport in which players actually grumble about “hurry-up” offenses and fans gladly give up four hours to watch one game.

Contrast that to the nonstop pace of soccer, which t…………… continues on Daily Breeze

The 6 best parenting lessons in Jerry Seinfeld’s Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee

Jerry Seinfeld’s endearingly self-explanatory web series Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee is a pleasure to watch. The editors don’t cut out all the awkward moments in the conversations between Seinfeld and his guest comedians — Larry David should be proud — and you get to watch two funny people drive some flavor of iconic car and chat over coffee.

Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, just entering its fourth season, also has some interesting insights about parenting — a topic Seinfeld, a father of three, brings up with some of his guests. Here are the six best moments about raising kids, having parents, and dealing with various bodily fluids:

Alec Baldwin

Baldwin: “What’s it like being a dad for you?”

Seinfeld: “Being a dad is, you know, it’s a surfboard on a rainbow: You’re getting all you can handle of life. What I like about having kids is when they’re on the toilet and you knock on the door, they just go, ‘Come in.’ Nobody else does that — nobody just invites you in when they’re on the t…………… continues on The Week Magazine

Parenting: A spectator sport

Parenting: A spectator sport
News from C-VILLE Weekly:

I never liked babysitting. Kids tend to be sticky. And loud. I couldn’t get them to do what I said, or go to bed. On the rare occasion I actually managed to get my charges to sleep, I would invariably find their parents didn’t stock good snacks. I wanted to want to be a mother one day, but I was afraid I would never actually want children. I shared my fears with my own mother, and she replied with a question.

“Do you like the Olympics?”

I nodded. I watch the whole two weeks of it end to end—kayaking, fencing, curling, the works.

“Then you will like having children,” she said.

She explained that the ability to delight in another person’s successes, empathize with their failures, and have patience with the boring bits was vital to good parenting. And she confessed that while she didn’t much like other people’s children, she very much liked her own. She gave me hope.

When my first child was put in my arms, I was hooked. Turns out the only drama more absorbing than my life is hers. A cousin of mine very astutely dubbed the first overwhelming months with a newborn “watching Baby TV.” Baby TV is on 24 hours a day, seven days a week. She…………… continues on C-VILLE Weekly

Countryside Parenting Tips: Ordinary genius
News from Wilmette Life:

A genius possesses rare talents of the mind and heart.  They are usually awkward introverts, strange, muttering fellows who boil vast quantities of complex information down to one useful truth.  Stephen Hawking nestled the universe into a nutshell.  Charles Darwin explained the evolution of all life through the wizened smile of a tortoise.  Jonas Salk pondered millions of polio cells and created the tiny vaccination that rescued humanity.

Parenting is not a competitive field, though it often feels like it is. Parents can set a good example, influence, guide, challenge and care, but the control we exercise over our children and the choices they make is finite and limited.  A parent’s success cannot be measured by a child’s accomplishments.

Parenting is now complicated in ways that are contrived, ridiculous and totally disorienting.  Kids are enrolled in violin lessons before they can tie their shoes.

‘The Myth Of The Spoiled Child’ Bucks Conventional Parenting Wisdom
News from WGBH NEWS:

While most experts warn parents of the perils of spoiling their children, Alfie Kohn’s new book, “The Myth of the Spoiled Child,” takes a dramatically different approach to parenting. 

Read an excerpt from “The Myth of the Spoiled Child”:

Does Permissive Parenting
Create Spoiled Kids?

Even if a lot of parents were permissive and a lot of children were self-­centered, these phenomena are not necessarily related. Those who criticize what they see as an indulgent style of child-rearing are obliged to show, rather than merely assume, that it explains the characteristics in children they find troubling.

There’s nothing new about trying to link undesired outcomes to insufficiently traditional parenting. Indeed, the entire 1960s counterculture was attributed to parents—well, let’s just say “blamed on” parents, given the assessment of that counterculture by those who did the attributing. Specifically, the fault was said to lie with moms and dads who supposedly let their offspring have their way too often. This connection seems to have been sparked in the spring of 1968 by a New York Times Magazine essay called “Is It All Dr. Spock’s Fault?” written by a young sociologist named Chr…………… continues on WGBH NEWS
