Spent Some Time Outside Reading

I read a book to earn this badge: 
How Eskimos Keep Their Babies Warm by Mei-Ling Hopgood

How Eskimos keep their babies warm: parenting wisdom from around the world by Mei-Ling Hopgood — This was an interesting look at differing methods and philosophies of parenting all over the world. With an almost-three-year-old and another baby on the way, I found the varying ideas about potty training, discipline, father involvement, play vs. work, and even sleep training to be fascinating. I thought this was great book that does not take the part of one method over another (one of the most frustrating flaws of so many parenting books).
