Angela’s Unsolicited Parenting Advice – Kids Aren’t Helpless

Bear with me. I’ll get this parenting advice bee out of my bonnet soon and be back to self deprecating humor.

Practice saying this to little Johnny (or Ronnie or whatever the Hell your kid’s name is).

“I am NOT your pack mule. You do not hand me stuff to carry that you’re perfectly capable of toting, yourself. ”

“I am DEFINITELY NOT your trash receptacle. Do NOT hand me your empty chips bag or string cheese wrapper or juice box or wadded up napkins or anything else that you’re done with….Locate a garbage can (or recycling bin) and throw the stuff away. Mommy will watch from over here and applaud your independence.”

-said Angela to no one in particular

  1. Cut the word count by, say, a factor of ten and then you’ve got something. Too many words and you’ll not have finished one rant before it’s time for the next one: tiring!

    Lol, I can use all the behavioral management I can get. Thanks so much for reading my blog and taking time to comment. I read your post about nursing in Arizona. Tried to comment, but WP refused to accept my password. Strange. I’ll try again soon.
