I loved Expecting Better when I was pregnant and this straightforward examination of parenting after having the baby is excellent as well. My kids are a bit older so I skimmed most of the first year info. I appreciate the way the author examines trends in raising children with data rather than emotion to prove points. (As seen here with my chili dinner) #parenting #raisingreaders #readandeat

If we only imagine gender equality as being empowering girls and what‘s in it for boys? As Gloria Steinem once said “I‘m glad we‘ve become to raise our daughters more like our sons but it will never work until we raise our sons be more like our daughters.”

😂 My aunt used to take us trick or treating and had to check most of the Reese‘s to be sure they weren‘t poisoned! 😂

In my teens I remember watching the scary movie Halloween and that was about all the association I had with the real thing until I met you guys here on Litsy. We don‘t celebrate it where I live and I am amazed each year about the buzz it creates on Litsy 😱!
I do eat 🎃 though 😉 and I am happy for you Rachel to reach 10K Litfluence! Congratulations 🎈, I am enjoying your post very much and hope I may join your #Big10k giveaway 😘

I always get some Reese‘s before “disposing of the leftovers” to trick or treaters! Lol😋

Money that improves schooling is always well spent, of course. But perhaps it would be better spent long before anyone reaches school age - before birth, when his brain and body are still forming.

“The cumulative advantages of a healthy prenatal environment and a stimulating postnatal environment is enormous.” But just how, how much intelligence is affected by prenatal conditions is hotly contested, as is almost every assertion in the field of intelligence research.

But there‘s something else going on here, too: the rise of an invincible icon I think of as the Pregnant Superwoman. This imaginary superhero never needs to sit down and take the weight of her feet, or catch her breath at the top of the stairs. She runs a marathon in her third trimester and works twelve hour days until her water breaks. ... and she has become the unattainable standard against which women measure themselves during pregnancy.

Today, attitudes have undergone an almost complete reversal. The notion that women should restrict their activities during pregnancy is regarded as old-fashioned at best, and patronizing at worst. How well a women handles pregnancy not on how gracefully she submits to a new regimen of rest, but on how determinedly she adheres to her prepregnancy schedule.
