We're back from our great adventure - met wonderful people and our brains are bubbling. Our kids were absolutely great, but we are all happy to be home.
The picture above was from of our visit with Henry Tenenbaum at KRON Channel 4 in San Francisco. He was a fabulous host and as nice off-camera as on. He took special care to make sure our kids got a chance to be on the set and watch how things worked in the control room. They were thrilled. It's now available on Google Video here: Eides on KRONTV Ch4
Looks like lots of articles and research to catch up on - including a trend study of high school sophomores (here showing increased demands for homework), reviews of Hothouse Kids here...young author's critique of overly ambitious parents, and research papers such as the study from Israel that found an increased risk of autism with advanced paternal age (Washington Post article here, Arch Gen Psych Abstract here.
We're still catching up - we'll try to return to our usual blogging schedule by the end of this week.
