Over the past few weeks I've come across so many amazing stories, inspiring tales, and great blog posts. Here's a sampling for your reading pleasure!
Great story today in the NYTimes about an Italian family who discovered amazing medieval and ancient worlds beneath their floor! History is everywhere - and sometimes it takes tying a rope around your 12 year old's waist and lowering him down a dark hole to discover it! Ha!
Interview with Peter Gray, author of Free to Learn: Why Unleashing the Instinct to Play Will Make Our Children Happier, More Self-Reliant, and Better Students for Life and professor of psychology at Boston College. My favorite quote from this interview was when Gray states that if our society is one where it is not safe for our children to run freely and unattended, then we need to fix that society. We cannot just accept it and force our children to grow up inside and constantly under supervision.
