Neighborhood Find of the Week: So, you know how you sometimes see shoes tied together and tossed across an overhead street cable? Some lovely person tossed up a pair of hearts. It’s irrational how much affection I have for this person’s act. What a great statement.
Parenting Links of the Week:

- Going Back to School from the Child Mind Institute
- Building Resistance in Children in the Face of Fear and Tragedy from the NYU Child Study Center
- Play Dr Mom has a round-up of Thoughts and Resources in the Face of Tragedy
- To my post on Monday about using picture books to help children I added School Library Journal’s Why Did It Happen? Books to Help Kids Cope with Tragedy
