Raising Feminist Kids

  By Jon Sponaas for Brain, Child: The Magazine for Thinking Mothers   Feminism is a word that represents such a vast (and often conflicting) array of meanings, that, no matter how much you’ve read, it’s hard to know what you’re thinking and talking about when you’re thinking and talking about Feminism. And I should say it straight up in the first paragraph that I’m certainly no expert in terms of the many and varied nuances of feminist theory.

Special Needs Children in Italian Schools

By Michelle Pina Damiani for Brain, Child: The Magazine for Thinking Mothers     A perk of eighth grade in Italy is the annual gita. Italian for “excursion,” this is a three-day rite of passage celebrating the end of middle school—a last “viva!” before the students divide into specialized high schools. Nicolas returned home in bliss from his recent gita and recounted stories of boat rides to Venetian palaces, the discovery of paprika flavored Pringles, and a realization about his classmate, Giovanni.   Giovanni is in one of the other eighth grade classes, so... read more
