Gina Cocking replied to Megan Calhoun's discussion Weekly Commenting Contest: What is one rule you never break as a parent?
"Saying "Because I told you so".  I wouldn't accept that as a reason, therefore my daughter shouldn't have to.  I always try to give her the bigger picture so she can internalize the rule by understanding it."

Fun Science Music Video to Share With Your Kids: A Scientific Cover of Jason Mraz's "I'm Yours"

I love finding fun science multimedia that I can share with my daughter and other families (and no, I am not talking about volcano videos).  A few weeks ago I came across this fabulous video that is a "scientific cover" of Jason Mraz's "I'm Yours".  This is the song that has the wonderful carefree, summertime feel.  This video is on an Australian beach.  I live in Chicago and Spring is slow in coming.  We are desperate for sunshine and warm weather.  On this video I can smell the suntan…See More

A little about yourself...
In our family, we talk about science a lot. Not as frequently as we discuss the Cubs, Blackhawks or Star Wars, but still quite a bit. We whip out the IPad and check out the sun bursts on the 3D Sun App. We visit NASA.gov to get the latest discoveries by the Kepler mission. We read books together like “The Disappearing Spoon” by Sam Kean. As parents, we try to introduce science into everyday conversations with our third grader. I have created this blog to fuel conversations in families like ours about science.

I'm a working Mom and always striving to balance it all.
What kinds of things do you typically Tweet about?
Fueling science discussions in families by highlighting the latest discoveries and interesting facts.
What are your areas of interest?
