OGrownups Update

I decided that it might be worthwhile to compile and publish a monthly update for the OGrownups list, a parenting list for Objectivists (non-Objectivists are welcome to lurk) that I co-manage with C. August. I'll do both January and February today, and will post monthly updates from here on out.

As of today, we have 191 members, gaining 14 in January and 3 in February. Not too shabby!

January's Topics included:

  • Free Range Kids (the idea in general, and the website specifically)
  • A link to a pro-spanking news article
  • Spitting
  • Many health topics, including the paleo diet, multi-vitamins for children, and taking DHA during pregnancy
  • K12 curriculum, pros and cons
  • Child birth options
  • Resources for nursing mothers
  • Great Parents through History
  • Adoption

February's Topics:

  • Secular Parenting Survey
  • Baby Signs
  • Family vacation destinations
  • Musical audio books for kids
  • Food allergies
  • Autoimmune disease
  • Cloth diapering
  • How to handle a situation in which a child has stolen something and lied about it
  • Product recommendation: a trivia game
  • Nakedness around kids in the home

Wow! We really covered quite a bit of territory. If you're interested in joining, click the link above.
