A Simple Bully Buster- Cooperative Learning - - Schools everywhere are concerned about bullying. Maybe it would help to encourage them to cooperate rather than compete. A study of 217 kids in grades 3-5 found that cooperative learning experiences fostered cooperative personalities and promoted kind, helpful behavior toward their classmates. These kids were less likely to act aggressively toward their peers and try to do them harm than kids who favored competition.

Consequences of U.S. and Dutch Approaches to Teen Sex - - The way parents talk about sex to their kids has a dramatic effect on things like rates of contraceptive use, teen pregnancy, abortion, and STI transmission

Cultural Studies - Mean-Girl Bullying Trickles Down to Grade School - NYTimes.com - - Media and society in general has become increasingly un-civil. What could possibly go wrong? If only trickly-down economics worked as well!

Lives in the Balance and Dr. Greenes approach - - A new, neuroscience-based approach to children and challenging behavior.

Op-Ed Contributors - There’s Only One Way to Stop a Bully - NYTimes.com - - A NYT op-ed on what works and what doesn't in anti-bullying programs.

The Science behind your Teenager's Brain - - A nice graphic on the Teenage Brain.

The Wisdom of Babies - Greater Good - - Learn about Roots of Empathy, an evidenced-based program that brings babies into school classrooms in order to break the intergenerational cycle of violence and abuse.

What If Everything You Knew About Disciplining Kids Was Wrong - Mother Jones - - This article describes a new approach to kids' behaviorial issues that's having great success in schools, family homes, and even correctional facilities.

What the U.S. Can Learn from the Dutch About Teen Sex – TIME - - What do you get when you view teen sexuality as frightening and dangerous, as we do in the U.S., instead of normal and healthy, as in the Netherlands? Eight times as many babies, up to 19 times as many STDs (Depending on which STD), and shallow relationships driven by male desires for pleasure, rather that loving, respectful relationships.
