I kind of hate parenting ‘experts’ and their bullshit advice.
Don’t get me wrong, I read everything I can find on parenting. But nine times out of ten I’m left with strained ocular muscles from all the rigorous eye-rolling. They’re SO FREAKING SMUG.
Most of these ‘experts’ prey on the fact that parents, as a rule, are panicked about getting it all wrong. The most clicked on articles? The “should never” articles. Man, I’m clicking on those links like a hormonal teen clicking on Bieber dick pics. I need to see them. I NEED to see what I’m doing wrong.
So you better believe I clicked on the link that told me the Ten things you should NEVER say to your kids.
Shit. Apparently I am doing severe and permanent damage to my child every time I open my mouth.
