Clickworthy | June 4 2011

At SMB we want to bring you information and inspiration from around the Valley and beyond. Here are some clickworthy links from around the web this week. Enjoy!

I’ve never felt like it was fair to force toddlers to share, and this article backs up why it’s developmentally impossible for them to see the point in handing over the toy they’re coveting at the moment.

I’m usually not an alarmist when it comes to THIS JUST IN: WE’RE ALL GONNA DIE type news, but the WHO’s cell phone radiation warnings got to me a little this week. Cool Mom Tech is a hip website for savvy mamas and they have a cute post up about gadgets to bring your paranoia down a notch or two.

Father’s Day is around the corner! Here’s a thoughtful post by a dad blogger on what he calls “the positive re-branding of fatherhood”.

Our family goes to a local farmers market most weekends when the weather allows, but we typically don’t make it out in the summertime. This morning I found out that the North Scottsdale Famers Market has an indoor location with A/C! Awesome! (Haven’t actually checked it out yet, but will do so and report back! :))

On a serious note, our thoughts are with those whose homes and lives are being threatened by the wildfires in our state. If you’re looking for an update, here’s the latest from ABC15.com.
