Weekly Reads, Vol. 76



I have not been able to articulate my thoughts about the violence that happened last weekend in Florida. Fortunately, others have not had that struggle. Steph and Taylor helped capture what I've been thinking and feeling.

Monica wrote about how to make yourself happy when you're feeling sad. I have deployed a few of the strategies she's listed. They really do help.

Body image and self-esteem issues are rampant among young women. And we learn it from the women closest to us. Madison did a great job in explaining what she wants to teach her daughter about her body.

I'm eager to see "Finding Dory," although after reading Karen's piece about how the movie uses bullying for laughs, I'm a bit less eager. I am far more sensitive to things than Karen is, so if she was disappointed, I'm likely to be even more so.

I'm all about encouraging people to read. And the younger you start them, the better. Kristin has some great tips for helping kids learn to enjoy reading.

  1. Thank you for sharing my post. The fact that I have people actually defending Disney over this is really disappointing.
