Encouraging Heroes. You can be one too.

Howdy Heroes!

I was supposed to publish this roundup last weekend, but had some rather severe trouble with 2 email accounts that got hacked and used to send out spam. Not just a little spam….more like 60,000 messages were sent. Oy. I think everything is cleaned up and locked down, and I am still working my way through every password I can find to make it stronger.

So much fun. You wish you were me, don’t you?

So! Let’s dig into some parenting links. This month’s theme was Teenagers. Not exactly an easy topic. I should know, I live with a couple of them. I have to admit I’m kinda glad they’re boys because I know I would really get into trouble with girls. I’m just too blunt for girls. Although it would force me to do a lot of growing, having girls. A LOT of growing. Wow. Hats off to the parents of girls.

Aaaand without further ado. I bring you, the Parenting Link Roundup.
