I have a very vivid memory of stepping into the shower — my alone-space where maybe I could think two coherent thoughts in a row — in total despair over some end-of-my-rope issue with some under-age-five child. He (or possibly she, I don’t remember which child it was, but I can make a pretty good guess) was clearly resistant to any approach we had tried while addressing his (or her) […]

We’re starting a new “mini-study” (Instastudy?) on Instagram tomorrow! These mini-studies take less time to complete each day, and only last 2-3 weeks.
