This post is a little unusual in that I don’t typically do product reviews, but I have found myself repeatedly recommending these sound machines to clients for a variety of uses and so it seemed worth while to write about what a helpful addition these appliances can be to your home.

I recently came across my notes from the Ken Myers lecture from a while back on “Modern Technology in the Lives of our Children” and thought I’d share the various resources that he mentioned and as well as some of the themes he emphasized.
Redeemer Classical School (located in Keezletown, Virginia) has arranged for Ken Myers to present a lecture this coming Friday (May 14, 2010) on Growing up in a Digital Nation: Modern Technology in the Lives of our Children.

There are two informative studies in the October issue of Pediatrics that reveal: the effects that some parenting styles can have on teen driving safety, as well as the increased risk associated with teens having a vehicle of which they are the primary driver.
Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder is one of the more common psychological diagnoses for children. Some estimate that 8-10% of school aged children are affected by ADHD. Thus if you are regularly involved with children you probably have interacted with children that are diagnosed with ADHD. If you are a parent you may have wondered, or had the question raised by others, as to whether your child could be diagnosable as having ADHD. This of course raises even more questions, such as: How can you tell if your child might have ADHD? What are some considerations for selecting a doctor to diagnose and treat your child? What are some of the medications available for ADHD? These questions are all addressed in a thorough and relatively reader friendly report available for download from Consumer Reports (CR) (links to the report are in the footnotes).
