DailyDirt: Good Parenting

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Raising kids isn't easy. Most parents want their kids to be successful, self-motivated, socially well-adjusted, smart, funny, artistic, good at sports, etc, etc.... But these kinds of parental requirements are enough to drive anyone a bit crazy -- and it's a bit unrealistic to think that parents have that much control over the personality and success of their kids. Still, parents want to try to provide the best opportunities for their children, but before parents out there try out the Tiger Mom method, check out a few of these links. If you'd like to read more awesome and interesting stuff, check out this unrelated (but not entirely random!) Techdirt post via StumbleUpon.

    Might I suggest...

    The works of John Cheese, who, incidentally, posted a Cracked.com article today about parenting.

    http://www.cracked.com/blog/5-ways-parenting-turns-you-into-dumbass/

    The guy speaks from life lessons, and, really, I think that most of his articles SHOULD be things that everyone should read at least once or twice.

    Hell, give 'em to High School students to read, they might learn a thing or three...

    Not to mention the teachers.

    thats been the problem with the people of the world. people exposing their kids brains to all the wrong things from day one... the things that a brain is exposed to are all it has in it's disposal. that's why the seeds of deception are planted in the fresh soil of their minds from the very beginning.

    sorry, I'll stop now. I'm kinda wasted at the moment so...

    Re:

    The problem is not exposure is how you deal with it.

    Any good ones to start with? It appears that this guy has quite a few articles and columns on Cracked.
