My good friend (and best man) Sanoj showed me this video last year before Nathan was born. I thought it was thought provoking and interesting then, especially the part about it taking time to truly love your child. My eyebrows were raised then, but now that I am six months into this thing called parenting, I’ve just rewatched this and I have to say that everything they say makes sense now.
This is a TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) talk given by Rufus Griscom and Alisa Volkman, who are the founders of Babble, a website for parents. Here’s their profile from TED. I don’t want to spoil the video with my own verbage, so I’m just embedding their talk from Youtube. Enjoy!
