A La Carte (5.8.12)

This week’s menu of articles from around the Web include the following:

When You’re Children Are Sick: A challenging and insightful article about our attitudes toward our children’s sicknesses. This mother writes that her children’s sicknesses teach her to not expect perfection, to be patient, to care, to pray, to trust, and to teach her children. Good stuff!

Your Children Want YOU: A mother reminding fellow mothers that they don’t need to be/do everything that other moms are displaying on Pinterest or Facebook. “If you ever find yourself looking in the mirror at a woman who feels badly that she hasn’t yet made flower-shaped soap, please offer her this helpful reminder: ‘Your children want you!'”

Dads Changing Diapers? An interesting commentary on a recent advertising change from Huggies

Cheating: A Normal Part of School? Many students say it is.

Puberty Before Age 10: A New Normal? A NY Times article about the trend of earlier puberty in our culture. “For many parents of early-developing girls, “normal” is a crazy-making word, especially when uttered by a doctor; it implies that the patient, or patient’s mother, should quit being neurotic and accept that not much can be done.”

The Story of Ian and Larissa: What a great story about a marriage that would make no sense to the world, but that makes perfect sense in light of the gospel.
