Cosleeping and Biological Imperatives: Why Human Babies Do Not and Should Not Sleep Alone by Dr. James McKenna. When done safely, mother-infant cosleeping saves infants lives and contributes to infant and maternal health and well being. Merely having an infant sleeping in a room with a committed adult caregiver (cosleeping) reduces the chances of an infant dying from SIDS or from an accident by one half. (Thanks Jenny)
Homosexuality and Biblical Authority: Different Crisis, Same Problem on Patheos. Leaving aside the specific issue of homosexuality, Keller’s observation about evangelical notions of biblical authority is correct but also concerning. In my opinion, Keller has, perhaps unwittingly, put his finger on the entire problem evangelicals face when confronted with any issue that runs counter to evangelical theology: “You’re asking me to read my Bible differently than my tradition has prescribed, and so I can’t go there. If I do, my faith is kicked out the door.” (Thanks Bridget)
Beauty Is Only Skin Deep, But Instagram Is To the Bone by Hollee Actman Becker on Huffington Post. Checking our kids’ news feeds to see what they are viewing, scrolling through their profiles to see what they’re posting, investigating the people who want to follow them, finding out who they’ve given their password to and monitoring all of their accounts (because most kids have more than one Instagram account, in case you didn’t know) doesn’t make us helicopter parents. It makes us smart parents. And there is nothing more beautiful than being smart.
