Parenting Advice

January 30, 2013

May we speak for a moment about people who give unsolicited parenting advice? Particularly the “smack that kid, don’t be his friend” type of advice.  This is irritating from anyone, but when it comes from someone with no kids. Please.  Some of these people are no where near mature enough to parent, but they are quite willing to tell you how to do it.

Let’s get this straight.  I know my kids better than you do.  You will know your kids better than I do.  There are all types of kids out there, and all types of parents.  Yes, there are abusive parents, and apathetic parents.  Most of us though, are doing the best we can, and working it out day by day.  We’ll ask for advice when we need it.  Until then, do us all a favor and keep your mouth shut.

I’m a liberal. I love gays, poor people, and immigrants. I love poor gay immigrants. I am in favor of gun control. I’m religiously ambivalent. I hate about 80% of the crap I see on Facebook, but I keep my hippie peace freak heathen mouth shut. This is where I DON’T keep it shut.
