Capricious Opinions

Brain, Child: The Magazine for Thinking Mothers, is very good medicine. Whoever you are, whatever your position, you will find good company in these pages. Playful point- counterpoints sit side by side with deep personal essays. Vigorous letters and opinions are artfully presented and discussed by the editors. There is no self-help and no advertisement. Just us.

Blessing of a Skinned Knee, by Wendy Mogel, PhD. offers a very accessible and very compelling reason to let go of your children enough that they can learn from the consequences of their own actions. Using lessons from Jewish morality, she provides a guide for the expectations that we should have for our children if we want to raise good citizens.
