DT Friday Freakout

The Daddy Types Friday Freakout is a carefully curated collection fo headlines from the worlds of science, health, parenting, etc., designed to freak you out all at once, instead of a little bit every day:

"How Long Can You Wait To Have A Baby?" asks The Atlantic [of the ladies]. Though I assume the question's kind of moot if you're reading this, the short answer is, "Longer than everyone's been saying for the last decade. Relax and enjoy the process a bit." [The Atlantic]

"A Dog With Two Names?" The American Scholar neither really asks nor answers in this bilingual baby research summary. I thought it would reveal kids naming their pets different things in different languages. Which, right? Yeah, no. It's basically how bilingual kids develop the concept of mutual exclusivity--one word/one thing--more slowly. Because, obviously. [The American Scholar]

This one came out last week, so maybe you've already heard thata study of involved dads finds they are resented by their kid-free work colleagues. Also they get fewer raises and promotions. Because shuttling kids around to playdates and doctor's appointments and stuff is its own reward. Stop hoarding all the benefits! [Science Daily]
