Happy Friday, or depending on when you are reading this, it could be Thursday night! Once again, I’m excited to welcome you back to our Ladies Only Blog Share! Every week our link party continues to grow! This week’s theme is Back to School RULES! Some of our children are already back in the classroom; others, like myself, have kids heading back in the next couple of weeks. Feel free to link up any of your posts about back to school…sports count too!
Before we get started, I’d also like to share with you some great posts that I’ve come across recently! Please visit them if you have a moment and spread some blog love. You might make a new friend!
At Finding Ninee, Kristi has a series called Our Land: Where empathy and wonder rule. The other day she had Kenya from Here’s the thing… guest posting about her experience being the only black child in her class and a teacher that made a difference in Our Land – What comes around, goes around… I don’t want to give it away, but this is a post you want to read! It’s a wonderful reminder that we all have the ability to make a difference in someone’s life!
If you’re a regular here on my blog, then you know that my kids are heavily involved in sports and exactly what I think about participation trophies and other youth sport topics. This morning I came across What happens when “Bad Parents” make a movie, a review by Janis at JBM Thinks. I’ve seen some pretty lousy behavior on the sidelines, but from Janis’ review, this sounds like it’s a movie that could make all of us reflect a little bit. I definitely plan to see it!
I also really loved this post at our very own Four Hens and a Rooster: Vacay Guest Post: Social Teens and their Clueless Parents, from Dorien at More in Media. I really have to highlight this because this is such an important topic for those of us who have tweens and teens. Our kids are online. No matter how responsible a kid is, they will probably at some point do something stupid. And we need to help them navigate through this, because what they do and say online will affect them in the future…with their college applications, for jobs, and of course their reputation!
