The Other Parent: The Inside Story of the Media's Effect on our Children by James Steyer.
Very interesting read so far. Makes me want to get rid of the TV entirely. However, we are very picky about what James is allowed to watch. Today just happens to be an attitude adjustment day so no TV/DVD/Video viewing.
My mom gave it to me when we were visiting. Thanks Mom!
Currently working on
This is the last week of my English Literature class and the final is next week. I am working on finishing my literary analysis paper on The Giver which is due at the end of the week. Have done the research, reread the book, figured out what elements want to cover and know what I want to say. Now I just have to write it.
Going into Week 5 of my Oceanography class and have to say it is very interesting and learning something new every week.
I had planned on starting James' lessons this week, but decided to put it off another week or two. We need a couple more weeks off. The past month has just flown by. So, I will be working on lesson plans and schedules for the next few days as well.
What is Father doing?
He is working on the redesign of the Warmenfat amplifier and also coming up with new designs for other products. He spent yesterday upgrading our desk top computer and now it is worker more quietly and faster. The old hard drive's fan was going out and it was noisy as heck. Plus had a few other problems. So now James is enjoying playing "cars" and the computer isn't crashing on him.
Father's next item on his "honey do" list: Plant marigolds in the front yard. Maybe he and James will do that on a daddy day. :)
