I’m a big fan of StumbleUpon. I’ve literally been using it for years if you count my original account that probably still exists somewhere on their system. It’s a great way to pass a little bit of time and find all kinds of new things on the internet.
While going through my feed reader the last couple days, I bookmarked a few of the posts that I submitted to StumbleUpon to mention here. Take a look and if you use StumbleUpon and like the posts, please give them a vote up, too.
First, Autism Twins has what is probably my favorite post of the week. She has young twins (a little younger than Geetle and Pookie) who both have autism. One of them has not been developing his language skills as quickly as the other. At least that’s what everybody thought. Then this happened. I know from watching Pookie that he will frequently watch things for quite a while and almost refuse to try them on his own. Then out of the blue he’ll be doing something like pointing at things and do it nonstop. Keep up the great work, John.
ChildPlayX2 has a perfect example of the kinds of things that great dads do with their kids. It’s hard work being that good of a dad.
I dodge almost all talk of politics and very rarely talk about Autism Speaks. They are both pretty touchy subjects. Autista wrote a post that takes them both on at the same time. I’m still not sure how I feel after reading the post. Go take a look. Just remember, he’s the one talking about politics and Autism Speaks…not me
There was a post today on GNMParents that caught my attention. It is talking about how to teach kids to use technology as a tool rather than a distraction.
Finally, our very own BeAGoodMom frequently complains about the news because they constantly have news items about missing kids, politicians busted for allegedly doing stuff and other big headline news but the rarely ever follow up with the outcome over the following days or weeks. Since she has her own blog, she controls her own media and here she is tying up the loose ends.
Did you vote for any of them? Did you find any other posts recently that other people wrote that you Stumbled that I should know about?
