What It’s Like Being A Parent: Part Six

Posted by , under NOTEBOOK


Last week, we described what parenting is like when kids have siblings. It’s basically like juggling angry kittens

Today, let’s chat about getting your kids home from the park, school or some other event. Any time you absolutely have to leave and get the kids in the car, it’s not a good time for your kids.

So, maybe you try to coax them. Nope. Threaten to punish them? Yeah, right. Negotiate? HA! Bribe them? Not usually workable. Instead, we opt for tantrum-carries or undercover snatch and grabs. To a layperson, it looks like you’re kidnapping your own child.

    I am still trying to process what just happened in this video.

    But to be honest, it seems that getting a cow into a back seat of a car is waaaaaaaay easier than getting the kids to do the same.
