It’s that time again. Here are the articles, memes, and other share-worthy things I’ve encountered in my adventures in cyberspace these last two weeks.

Articles + Blog Posts

1. Why Does My Kid Freak Out?, by Melinda Moyer [Slate]

Very interesting look at the toddler’s psyche.

2. 50 Things Only ’80s Kids Can Understand

I’m on the young side to remember some of these, but the ones I do – hoo boy! What a great look back into the nostalgia file.

3. Sex, Part 2: Why Wait?, by Jamie the Very Worst Missionary

This post left me wanting to cheer. Agree or disagree with the substance of this parent’s advice on sexual purity, but I think this is exactly the approach we should take in developing a Christian sexual ethic: one based on virtue and lifelong goals that goes beyond “that first roll in the hay,” as she puts it.

Also: humor. Lots of LOLs on what can be a touchy subject.

4. Do Millennials Give a Damn About PRISM?, by Andrew Sullivan

Interesting accounts of millennials explaining why they aren’t so botherd by the NSA scandal. (Hint: it has very little to do with the so-called war on terror.)

5. New York Restaurant Bans Tips – For Wait Staff’s Own Good, by Liz Fields [Slate]

This is a much better way to pay servers, and I would love to see more mid-range restaurants follow suit.

6. In Which Sally Grasps Contraception, by Libby Anne [Patheos]

I love Libby Anne’s account of teaching Sally sex ed. There’s no moralizing, it’s completely age-appropriate but respectful to Sally’s intellect. This will provide the great basis to help Sally develop her beliefs about sexual morality and responsible sexuality as she develops. Our country would do well to have more of this kind of sex-ed, organically and done by parents throughout a child’s life.
