Here's a neat article I saw in the Washington Post about risk-taking -- another of those joys of being a parent of a middle schooler.
There are lots of articles about parenting out there and many of them are focused on the middle school years. But after so many years of having these kiddos in my classroom as well as raising my own, I read these articles carefully and think about them before passing them on. I think this one hits the mark.
The follow article comes in full from the August 20 edition of the online edition of the Washington Post.
