Weekend Links-October 23

October 23, 2011

See this beautiful picture–it’s in Playa del Carmen Mexico and in a few short weeks I will be there. I can’t wait. No kids! Only my hubby! Praise the Lord!

We are taking an early trip for our 10th anniversary which is in February. We traded in my mom’s timeshare which made it remotely possible. Thanks mom!

Now on to my favorite finds this week:

We are raising today’s children in sterile, risk-averse and highly structured environments. In so doing, we are failing to cultivate artists, pioneers and entrepreneurs, and instead cultivating a generation of children who can follow the rules in organized sports games, sit for hours in front of screens and mark bubbles on standardized tests.

We say we’re “protecting” our children. We say we’re setting them up to “succeed.” Really, we’re doing neither, and we’re letting an entire generation down. The most fitting way to honor Jobs’ legacy? Let our kids outside to play.
