Tweets Of Interest (Links)

Here are some tweets that we thought might interest you. Follow the links to find out more.

First up, a program to get boys to read more. My kids read constantly so this isn’t an issue in my house. But reading is fundamental so we’re all for any program that encourages kids, boys or girls, to read. (RIF still exists, by the way, I thought it had disappeared but it hasn’t.) Via @RookieMoms.

Next up, another boy thing: “When should boys use public restrooms alone?” That’s actually a tough question. At some point a boy is really too old to be going into the Ladies’ Room, and if it’s just mom and son out and about, well… I don’t have an answer for this one. As with so much of parenting, it’s like the old man said to the pharmacist – depends. There are so many factors to consider, including the age of the kid, your comfort level, and of course where you happen to be. The bathroom at a small restaurant is very different from one at a multiplex. Via @Mommyfriend and @BabbleEditors.

October 22 Tweet Round Up (Links)

You know that twitter thing all the kids are into? It’s not just young’uns that are tweeting. (Actually, for all I know, the kids are into something I don’t even know about yet. If so, don’t tell. Sometimes, in very rare cases, it’s easier to live in denial. And I don’t mean the river.) It’s grown-ups too. Especially Dad Bloggers, Mom Bloggers, Parent Bloggers, Pet Bloggers, journalists, celebrities… who knows. Octopi?? They’d be great at tweeting with all those tentacles.

Isn’t that cute? You could get it as a Halloween costume for your toddler. Pretty sure the extra tentacles don’t do anything except flop around, though.

But we digress. Here is a round up of some tweets we came across that we will now pass along to you, the reader, in the hopes that you will find them intriguing. Click a link or two. What else are you doing? Working? Don’t answer that.

And now… TWEETS!

Space news and pics via GeekDad:

This one is via HuffPo; the comment is from Brett Singer’s Twitter feed. Still not sure what the headline means. Likely will never know.

Next is via reporter Tamara Lush, who has the most awesome Twitter feed ever. Two words — Florida news. Another word — dogs. Follow her. You will not regret it.

Also from Tamara Lush, a less fun but still interesting news item about bullying:

Our last tweet is also about bullying, via the New York Times Motherlode.

Dad Related Link Roundup For Today

Worthington Super Links

Ah, branding. I’ve tried to come up with a consistent title for these DaddyTips link roundups. DaddyTips Link Roundup. Show and Tell. Reading is Fundamental. Reading Makes Me Mental. I give up. Here’s a link roundup on, and it’s a series of links to things I saw that I don’t want to recap in a full post because I don’t have time to that and also be a parent.

Awaaaay we go. Read more »

Reading Makes Me Mental [Links]

Worthington Super Links

I used to call the DaddyTips Link Roundup Show and Tell or Reading is Fundamental. Then I discovered that the Reading is Fundamental program, RIF, had been defunded. (RIF RIP. Rim shot. Thank you.) I also realized that reading generally makes me mental. Since I never met a play on words I didn’t like, I’ve decided to call the DaddyTips Link Roundup Reading Makes Me Mental.

And wow. Does it ever.
