Are you still telling your kids they are "smart?" That they
"shouldn't cry?" That you "love them?" Hey, old-fashioned, what
gives? A list from lifehack.org
that went viral last week says we don't say those things
anymore! The Dads reacted to the first 4 last week - here are the
WDP23: Crying gets the sound out by ChicagoParent
Encouraging your child to do good things by using incentives
will only cause them to someday work a job for monetay reward.
Everything is a big deal. Crying is awesome. Promises are always
kept, and being intelligent is for lazy old Mr.
Or at least that's what this list from lifehacker.com would
like you to believe. It's hard to imagine that the crusty
curmudgeons at White Dad Problems have a problem with these
attitudes. Give a listen for their arguments.
And once you've listened, subscribe to the full length show on
iTunes! It's free!
(But we won't say it's "no big deal", as that will mess you up.)
You can even leave a review, after you've stopped crying. (Which is
a perfectly valid thing to do.) You can also listen at whitedadproblems.com.
(Do note that the show is for adults only.)
