Ray Welch added a discussion to the group Let's Talk Tea!

Anyone home?

Sorry to be joining the party so late.  According to the discussion board, it's been awhile since this group has had any active discussion. Hopefully this is still an active group, and we can re-engage in conversations about tea. I am an owner in a beverage company that specializes in tea.  I also enjoy talking with people about the most "social" of beverages...tea. ...so...is there anyone still out there?  See More

TED: Jennifer Senior: For parents, happiness is a very high bar - Jennifer Senior (2014)

The parenting section of the bookstore is overwhelming—it's "a giant, candy-colored monument to our collective panic," as writer Jennifer Senior puts it. Why is parenthood filled with so much anxiety? Because the goal of modern, middle-class parents—to raise happy children—is so elusive. In this honest talk, she offers some kinder and more achievable aims.
