Coronavirus: Sorry, but Working From Home is Overrated - The New York Times
Steve Jobs, for one, was a famous opponent of remote work, believing that Apple employees’ best work came from accidentally bumping into other people, not sitting at home in front of an email inbox.

“Creativity comes from spontaneous meetings, from random discussions,” Mr. Jobs said. “You run into someone, you ask what they’re doing, you say ‘Wow,’ and soon you’re cooking up all sorts of ideas.”

I Do Things Differently From My Wife. And That’s OK. - NYT Parenting
"But now we focus more on working shoulder to shoulder on household chores, we say “thank you” a lot and we don’t make it a habit to redo each other’s work.

Our new approach has been transformative.

It’s time we as parents and partners stop thinking in terms of right and wrong when it comes to domestic obligations and begin accepting that our spouse is in the fight, but will do things a different way. Because, let’s be real: At the end of the day, a folded towel is a folded towel."

How to Stop Touching Your Face

“My general advice would be that people should try to reduce their stress over all, as opposed to obsessively worrying about what they touch,” said Stew Shankman, a professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at Northwestern University. “Stress impacts your immune system, and the more you’re stressed, the more you’re reducing your body’s ability to fight off infections.”

Coronavirus Is Spreading. Should You Cancel Your Family Vacation? - NYT Parenting
It’s probably a good idea to use wipes to clean tray tables, bathroom handles and other parts of the plane that you might touch that are not regularly sanitized by the flight crew.

A (Former) Night Owl’s Guide to Becoming a Morning Person - The New York Times
Some night owls will never feel great waking earlier, but as he said: “How you feel in the afternoon is the true test of sleep quality. Adequate sleep should result in improved memory, mood stability, creativity, impulse control and eating and drinking habits. Track these for a good while before deciding that sleeping for eight hours is no different to sleeping for six.”

“In addition, experts say some of the strongest protective effects may be with Type 2 diabetes, Parkinson’s disease, and liver conditions such as cirrhosis, liver cancer and chronic liver disease. For example, having about five cups of coffee a day, instead of none, is correlated with a 30 percent decreased risk of Type 2 diabetes, according to a meta-analysis of 30 studies.”

The Chase Sapphire Reserve Annual Fee Is Now Too High: Reviews by Wirecutter
If you already own the card but don’t want to deal with the new Chase Sapphire Reserve annual fee, consider asking Chase to move you to the Chase Sapphire Preferred instead. (You’re not guaranteed a downgrade, but it’s worth a shot.) There’s no travel credit on the Preferred, and you’ll earn about half as much in dining and travel rewards, but you’ll save $455 each year in annual fees.

Do You Really ‘See’ Your Child? - NYT Parenting
The point is to develop an attitude of curiosity rather than immediate judgment.

You just have to show up, allowing your kids to feel that you get them and that you’ll be there for them, no matter what. When you do that, you’ll be teaching them how to love, and how relationships work. They’ll be more likely to choose friends and partners who will see and show up for them, and they’ll learn how to do it for others, meaning they’ll build skills for healthy relationships, including with their own kids, who can then pass the lesson on down the line through future generations. That’s what it means to see — really see — your children.

Letter of Recommendation: ‘The Happy Song’ by Imogen Heap - The New York Times
The reason I play it so much is for the effect it has on my 18-month-old daughter. She’ll be screaming her head off about something ... By the time the music proper kicks in, with its jouncing 4/4 strings and its sprightly whistled melody, she has invariably stopped crying altogether. ... The correct description for what is going on here is that it gives her pause.

Is Mealtime Miserable? Try This. - NYT Parenting
Division of responsibility, or D.O.R.

D.O.R. is known as the “trust model” because it assigns specific roles to both caregiver and child — and then everybody has to trust everybody else to do their jobs. The adult is in charge of when meals happen.

Our kids are responsible for deciding which foods they’re going to eat, among the ones we’ve offered — which may mean weeks of ignoring vegetables in favor of bread or pasta.

Signing Up for an H.S.A.? First Figure Out How You’ll Use the Money - The New York Times
What if I want to save for a while, then invest the money later?

A reasonable approach, for those who can afford it, is to save enough in your H.S.A. to cover your deductible before you begin investing, said Justin McCarthy, a director and senior wealth adviser at Mariner Wealth Advisors in New York. That can help strike a balance between covering short-term medical needs and saving for future health costs.

Yes, You Can Get Free Trading. But There’s Often a Catch. - The New York Times
"Few enlightened investors are chasing hot stocks anymore; they’re buying and holding a diversified mix of index funds to help them pay for big life events like college and retirement. (Index funds are basic mutual funds that track wide swaths of the stock market.)"

"The lesson here: Free trading, or any other free service, should serve as a signal for investors — you’re probably paying somewhere."

Is Your Kid a Holiday Gift Monster?
Given that we’re always trying to get the littles to understand the difference between wants and needs, and to consider trade-offs between spending, saving and giving, what about this: You get one thing you want. One thing you need. And one sum of money to give to anyone or anything else you choose.

Is It Too Soon to Give My Kid a Tablet? - NYT Parenting
keeping all screens where you can see them, for example, in the living room or at the kitchen table when you’re cooking dinner, and keeping screens out of bedrooms. “There’s no technology that replaces your own eyes and ears.”

“The best toys are those that support parents and children playing, pretending and interacting together,” Dr. Alan L. Mendelsohn, co-author of the report and an associate professor in the Departments of Pediatrics and Population Health at NYU Langone Health, said in a statement last year. “And when children play with parents — the real magic happens, whether they are pretending with toy characters or building blocks or puzzles together.”

How to Deal With Head-Spinning Market Swings - The New York Times
A diversified portfolio of assets is the best long-term strategy, said Omar Aguilar, chief investment officer for U.S. equities at Charles Schwab Investment Management. These assets should include domestic and international equities, long-term and short-term bonds, cash and inflation-protection assets like real estate or Treasury Inflation-Protected Securities, or TIPS.

“We don’t believe in market timing,” he said. “Time in the market is more important than timing the market.”
