The whole Girl Scouts $100,000 controversy has really stuck with me this week. Here are some thoughts on trying to be more open to more kinds of people. Except for bigots. Not open to them. 

+Cool Mom Picks +Girl Scouts of Western Washington  #girlscouts   #tolerance   #diversity   #lgbt   #transgender   #lgbtrights   #parenting   #children  
In this week's Thinking: Parent column, Liz has a lot to say about the Girl Scouts, bigotry, discrimination, compassion...and just loving our kids.

So many cool DIY Father's Day gift ideas from the kids. Crafts, free printables, cards...all of it actually doable. (No offense, people on Pinterest who pretend their toddlers made some decoupage ceiling lamp.)

Trix, Lucky Charms, and other kid-favorite GM cereals now being made without artificial flavors and colors. That's huge news, especially for kids with food dye sensitivities.

If you have kids with food dye sensitivities, you'll want to read about General Mills removing artificial colors and flavors from all of their cereals.
