Editor's note: This is a weekly digest of stories we’re following — trends, news you can use and provocative parenting reads. Got a good read for us? Write

1. A good NPR Fresh Air piece on habits how they form, and how to make and break them. The good news: They're malleable throughout your entire life.

2. Is money the most important factor in good parenting? And, if so, what does that say about the programs that would most help low-income kids?

3. Two helpful posts from Seattle Mama Doc's blog on toddler sleep issues.

4. New York Times' Motherlode blog asks: Are women enemies of their own free time?

5. Almost 30 years after the first edition, with 17 million copies in print, What to Expect When You're Expecting is now a full-fledged cottage industry. Alison Benedikt gives her two cents on what’s really wrong about that.

6. Lisa Belkin takes the mother's perspective on the Rush Limbaugh flap.

And a bonus: If you missed the photos of European Parliament member Licia Ronzulli taking her toddler to work (yes, to Parliament to vote), check them out now. They're inspiring and a bit revolutionary.
