We’ve shown you a mother’s hypochondria (fearing the worst of a child’s illness or injury) with Hypo-mom-dria. With our Hyper-dad-dria illustration, we completed the parental picture by showing you a dad’s “put duct tape on it and walk it off” style of failing to see anything wrong. We figured it was time to focus on kids.
Everyone knows each kid is going to react differently to any given accident or ailment. But this is an examination of the intriguing fact that, whatever their reaction is, their behavior and description of it will be greatly affected by who it is being shown or described to. Mom or Dad.
It may be sobbing and wailing for one parent and then controlled tones and explanations of “something my eye” for the next. Sometimes things get bigger and worse or they get smaller and better, there’s no real pattern.
By using the highly scientific process of stereotyping and over-simplification of these variable reactions, we are able to visualize this concept here so you too can enjoy the fun of being smarter.
