When is it a good time to introduce children to politics? Well, this weekend I brought 5 yr old Charlie to a rally for Justin Trudeau. Here’s what I did and why I did it.
A Court in BC has ruled that you can’t leave your kids home alone if they’re under 10. Funny, I’ve been tossing around the idea of letting 8yo Zacharie wander off on his own. If I do, will they arrest me?
David Beckham’s daughter is 4 and was snapped by paparazzi with a pacifier. The judgy judgersons took to the internet and then Becks perfectly smacked them down.
The Calgary LEGO Store called mall security when they found an 11 yr old shopping alone in their store. Then they called the dad a bad parent. Fear based parenting needs to end.
Daddy daughter dances are creepy. That’s my bias. Go ahead, tell me I’m wrong, because I don’t have daughters, but they’re still an odd old tradition that make father daughter relationships more awkward than they need to be.
When you ground your kids, you need to follow through. So when I declared a week with no TV for my kids, that meant I had to deal with it too. Oh noes.
Charlie sat at the dinner table recently and declared “god is King of all the ghosts!” It opened up a discussion I wasn’t having with my kids, but will now. If you’re going to bring your false idols to the playground, I’m going to empower my kids with the knowledge that the seeds you are sowing will only reap lies.
Is it okay for you, as a parent, to be naked around your kids. Quick answer: yes. Longer answer: depends. I was on HuffPo Live talking about naked baby issues, here it is:
Similac Formula is making waves with a new ad that tries to end the Mommy Wars. In a world of no parental judgement, parents would be free to formula feed – that’s what they want. Fine, we fed formula. But it’s the portrayal of dads in the video that is turning the conversation sideways. Why Sisterhood of Motherhood? Why not call us all “parents?”
