I am a Ted Talk fiend. I look for topics of interest to me and watch and learn and take notes and get inspired. My latest find is How to raise successful kids -- without over-parenting by author, Julie Lythcott-Haims.
The Ted Talk is funny and delightful. Most importantly, it reminds me not to be so hard on my children and myself. Like Haims says, I have over-parenting tentendcies and get frustrated when it seems that they are going in the wrong direction. My take away is that I have to let go a little and let the kids live a little and stress will melt away from all of our lives. Take some time to listen, it is worth it.
