I Know The C-Virus Is Scary, But Try Working With A 4 Year-Old Dressed Like Spiderman Perched On The Kitchen Table Behind You. Day 6

Puddinhead2U Report

You’re trying to finish your report right before the deadline, but your kid is running around pretending to be a superhero. Or you want to sit down and watch some TV, but that’s the moment you realize that your toddler broke it. Ah, the wonders of parenting! It’s a challenge, but there are things you can do so you can focus on your work.

For instance, Allyssa McCabe, a psychology professor at the University of Massachusetts, told The Atlantic that it’s easier to keep kids busy during the workday without supervision the older they are. But for those readers out there who have young kids, don’t panic just yet!

“For young children, independent play is tough. They really need social interaction. Parents will be tempted to hand over an iPhone or iPad or the like. This is understandable, but parents should also know that the younger the child, the worse this is for their language and cognitive development.”

It’s A Trap

Anecdotal Birthcontrol

My husband has been making pancakes and eggs for breakfast every morning and my kids are becoming accustomed to a standard I am not prepared to maintain after he returns to work.

8:09 AM – 25 Mar 2020

AnecdtlBrthCtrl Report

Instead of making your kid sit surrounded with electronic devices all day long, it’s best to go for something that will actually help with their development. Give them art supplies or Play-Doh to get them creating!

Meanwhile, Michelle Martin, a professor at the University of Washington’s Informations School and the founder of a children’s summer literacy program, recommended that parents play their kids some audiobooks.

You’ll be able to focus on work and your child will be engaged and learning. And the best part? While your kid’s listening to Harry Potter, you can sneakily listen in, too, when you’re taking a break. Now that’s a win-win situation if we’ve ever seen one!

These Circle Gardens In Denmark Look Almost Too Perfect To Be Real

There’s no better feeling than escaping to nature after a hard week of working. And what better place to escape to than your own personal tiny garden home. The Brøndby Haveby or Brøndby Garden City is a small community located just a short drive from Copenhagen, Denmark. What sets it apart from any other garden community out there is its unique shape. The houses are arranged in a circular pattern and look absolutely surreal when viewed from above.

Photographer Henry Do has recently captured these amazing drone photos of the community and the look absolutely stunning.

The Brøndby Haveby houses are the perfect place to run away from the bustling city – the large yards mean plenty of room for activities and the tall hedges ensure your privacy.

The municipality of Brøndby approved the idea of this “garden city” over 50 years ago, back in 1964, and the circles began popping up one by one.

This specific arrangement wasn’t chosen by accident. The architect that designed the “garden city” said that the idea behind the circles was to increase social interaction among the renters.

When viewed from above, the circle gardens look even more surreal. They kind of look like grapes on a vine, don’t they?

Here’s what people had to say about the Brøndby Haveby
