#ifihadglass i'd show my 4 kids and NYTMotherlode readers the future of outdoor education: peaks, leaves and wildflowers identified on a hike. Stars mapped in the sky. Digital GPS treasure hunts created; with images as the only clues. Mysteries of fallen walls and old roads solved and histories revealed.

Patrick Wensink figures out what every man should know: cleaning is hot. But while most of us don't admit to that particular domestic bargain, he and his wife shook on it.

"For my two most recent books, I wrote in three uninterrupted 90-minute sessions — beginning first thing in the morning, when my energy was highest — and took a break after each one." I can't decide if this inspires me, or annoys the hell out of me.

Me v. Bruce Feiler. He says: moms dominate parenting because we won't give it up. I say we don't feel like we can give it up.

Would you teach a child to count calories?  Dara-Lynn Weiss's diet plan for a 7-year-old outraged plenty of parents, and she's not sorry (although she is nervous). Instead of jumping to judgment, read what she has to say about what she did, why, and what she hopes her daughter learned.

I promised to be a real #GlassExplorer  and figure out what you can do with these outside. Can't wait!

Check this out, and don't miss Emily Bazelon's book on bullying, "Sticks and Stones." I have an interview with her coming out tomorrow, but meanwhile, know that the book helped me break through a conversation with one of my kids that I've been trying to have for weeks.

Thanks for this one. When I witness bullying, I was not well equipped on the proper way to step in without throwing my adult authority around. My hope was for the bully and the one receiving the treatment to both grow socially.

How often do you forget the final words of this piece, from a dad who misses his daughter: : “Just hug your kids. Every day together is a gift." I needed the reminder. 
 
On Kids, Cancer, and an Unwavering Optimism

Last fall, when my son began playing hockey, I sat outside the boards during practice and watched as he fell down over and over. Skating can be a tough skill to pick up, harder still when burdened with helmet, pads and a stick. But he didn’t give up and, as more experienced players flew by him, I made a mental note to get him some extra lessons.

As I did, one of the coaches came over and skated along with my son. He gave him some pointers and the falling down became less frequent. I knew most of the coaches, but not this guy. So, when practice was over, I moved to introduce myself. His name was Jeff Christian and he towered over me; when I shook his hand, mine disappeared in his. It was almost intimidating until Jeff broke into a huge smile, slapped me on the shoulder and treated me like an old friend. I knew right then that I had found someone special.

He was not only our coach, but he also began giving my son lessons and took him from an unsure skater to a kid with lots of confidence, who was scoring goals by the end of the season. Jeff is unique because not only is he very outgoing, but, above all else, he is interested in you. I can’t remember a single time I’ve spoken to him when he didn’t ask how I was and how my family was doing — it makes me really enjoy being around him. But when I first asked about his family, I was unprepared for the story that followed.

Jeff had just retired from a career of playing professional hockey. There were a few glorious weeks in the NHL, where he skated with Mario Lemieux on the Pittsburgh Penguins and another handful of games for the New Jersey Devils and Phoenix Coyotes, but for the most part, Christian had tumbled from city to city in the minor leagues throughout the United States and, for a time, the Deutsche Eishockey Liga in Germany.

The life of a professional athlete can be nomadic. Jeff had frequently moved across the country, even playing a year in Sheffield, England; always going where the work was. Toward the end of his career, he was coaching and playing for the Missouri Mavericks in the Central Hockey League, which is how he ended up near us. Then, in what was to become his final year of playing as a pro, Jeff and his wife, Dorie, had a day that would change their lives forever.
