Because It’s Mother’s Day…

Posted by MarchFifteen & filed under Reflection.

With Mother’s Day coming up this weekend, we think this post by Daniel Pink is worth a read and watch.

PINKCAST 3.03: This is how to be a better (and saner) parent.

In honor of Mother’s Day, today’s Pinkcast offers a tip on how to become a more capable and compassionate parent.

For advice, I go to Michele Gelfand, a University of Maryland professor and author of one of my favorite books of the last year, Rule Makers, Rule Breakers: How Tight and Loose Cultures Wire Our World.

ONE MORE THING: In which I confess my own parenting mistakes.

Let’s stick with the parental theme. A few weeks ago, Lifehacker reached out asking to discuss my approach to parenting. Because I was so grateful they believed I had an “approach,” I sat for the interview.

You can read the conversation here. Be warned, though: It’s not pretty. I’ve done some really stupid things. But at least you’ll learn the Pink family motto.

As always, thanks for reading. And don’t forget to call your mother!
