The week's best parenting advice: May 26, 2020
1. It's not uncommon for kids to have a favorite parent, explains Claire Gillespie at The Week. Often the preference can be attributed to differing parenting styles: One parent is more disciplinarian than the other, so the more lax parent becomes the favorite. Other times it's about exposure: Perhaps mom is home less, so time with her becomes a special scarcity. If parents are divorced, "the child sometimes favors the non-custodial parent simply because they don't see them as much," says board-certified child and adult psychiatrist Lea Lis, MD. If you're the favorite, try to hype up the other parent.

'Bat-like' sensor that uses echoes to measure the distance between objects could help social distancing as lockdown measures are eased
Developed by engineer Alex Bowen and his Scottish start-up, IMERAI, the sensor was designed to can create images of its surroundings by using sound, rather than light. The tech was developed to collect data on physical environments in homes to train artificial intelligence without collecting private or personal info in the process. However, the team hope that the sensor can be successfully applied to help people maintain social distancing in office buildings when more people return to work.'All AIs need to constantly learn and adapt to understand the world like we do,' said Mr Bowen.
Course participants learn how to erect a shelter, build a fire, solar and celestial navigation, forage for edible plants, some within a timed environment designed to emulate the stress of a real survival situation.
"They've got a timed period to make a fire using the procedure that we've given them because it makes it efficient. They may have to light a fire to signal for help, to boil water to give to a person that's suffering from hypothermia," Dedman said.
"The other thing is that the timed deliverables gives an element of stress and in a survival situation you're going to be very, very stressed."
The interest in the course comes as Australia loosens its lockdown laws after months of restrictions that saw runs on supermarket staples, and many Sydney dwellers cooped up at home. Now beaches are reopening and pubs in Sydney are allowed to accept ten patrons for meals.
"I've been caught up with that supermarket mayhem. I didn't realise how entrenched I was in that," course participant George Hamza said. Hamza is one of 11 participants taking part in a three-day intermediate course near Ku-ring-gai National Park, Ingleside, north of Sydney.
"Coming out here and spending a few days here and removing myself from that, I'm feeling like I'm detoxing a little from that sphere of the world," he said. (Reporting by Jill Gralow, Writing by Melanie Burton, Editing by Raju Gopalakrishnan)
