Woman reading online

Every Friday I post some links to articles, videos or other resources that have caught my eye during the week. Some might be quite recent, but others might be older articles I have revisited or recently discovered. They will mainly focus on families, community engagement or environmental sustainability, but not necessarily.

Families

The authoritative parenting style: Warmth, rationality, and high standards. A guide for the science-minded from Parenting Science.

Community engagement

Are you practicing condescending community engagement? from Bang the Table

Sustainability

Co-housing communities curing loneliness and fulfilling sustainability from 1 Million Women

One from my vaults
