HANNA ROSIN DEMONSTRATES what feminist “rape culture” looks like. What do you mean, “victim?” He got attention from “pretty girls!”

To Play or Not to Play? It’s a Management Question, Really

This week we're going to talk about play, in three takes. Seriously. First is the aforementioned Atlantic feature by Hanna Rosin that's less a diatribe about helicopter parenting (my fear, given the title) and more a historical and organizational look at how kids spend their free time. Rosin notes

"A preoccupation with safety has stripped childhood of independence, risk taking, and discovery—without making it safer."

An Aspie By Any Other Name

Hanna Rosin’s son Jacob was diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome four months before it was expunged from the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders.
