I hope you all are enjoying the Friday News Round Up blog posts. I like sharing interesting articles that I’ve seen or heard over the past week, especially ones that I haven’t seen posted all over the internet. I have 2 new articles from NPR today. One is about parenting and screen time, and the other is about the declining Braille literacy. Enjoy and have a great weekend!
“If I can get them out the door with pants on, I feel like we’ve won the day.” A lot of parents can probably relate to those words from a stressed out dad, who’s trying to deal with big issues of parenting amid the normal chaos of just getting them to school.
Reading isn’t usually a competitive sport. But it’s become one for Braille readers because of a lack of excitement about Braille. Right now, the Los Angeles-based Braille Institute is putting on regional competitions like this one in a classroom at the Tennessee School for the Blind.
