John headshot Oct2013It’s that time again…time for me to post links to interesting things I found while looking around the internets.

A few weeks ago, Elloa Atkinson confessed to the world wide web that, while she loves her husband, she also has the desire to cheat on him. Needless to say, her article sparked a firestorm. The comments section is truly difficult to read because of the vitriol and venom readers spewed at her. The one voice missing in all the Sturm und Drang was her husband’s. Until now. Here’s Nige Atkinson’s response. It might surprise you.

ScreamFree’s very own Hal Edward Runkel has appeared numerous times on The Today Show. Many of those appearances have been to discuss the phenomenon known as “helicopter” parenting. Perhaps his sage advice is making a difference. Here’s an interesting article on what is now being called the “no-rescue” movement. The money quote is this: “A child who always forgets has a parent who always remembers.”

Who doesn’t love a good infographic? Especially when it’s about candy! In honor of tonight’s Halloween Haul, use this to familiarize yourself with all sorts of trivial information about your favorite candy.

Finally, since it’s Halloween, take a look at this collection of videos the folks at Ted-Ed have assembled. Blood hungry vampires. Zombies on a mission for your tasty brain. Creepy crawlies. No matter your (fictional or real) fright of choice, TED-Ed has a lesson for all of your Halloween needs. So pick out your favorite candy (more on that later), choose a few videos, and have a very happy Halloween.
