Connected Mom Reading Club

I like to read.  Might have been how I wound up in grad school for English.  Anyway, I've noticed that I'm a more patient/peaceful/aware parent after I've been reading parenting philosophy.  This can't be a coincidence.  So I'm going to start my day every day reading a brief article/book segment to help me rethink how I approach parenting that day.  Now I don't dream that I'll spend everyday switching parenting philosophies, instead these pieces will focus on gentle parenting, consensual living, attachment parenting, green living, etc.  Once a week, I will aim to read a piece on building a stronger marriage, because it needs to be a priority too.  Everyday I will post what I'm reading and link to it, and I'd be thrilled if you would read along and respond with your thoughts.

Here's the scoop:
- I am all-inclusive, therefore the pieces will be secular.
- I am not espousing the methods of the author.  If I like it, I will write more on the ideas.  The initial reading is purely inspirational.
- This is a buffet - take what you want and leave the rest.

I'll still be posting several times a week, but I will post readings 5-7 times a week.  I look forward to some good discussion!

What a great idea! I feel I'm more patient with my 3 year old when I've been reading too. I'm going to try to participate in the discussions too.
