I was saying that my daughter is obsessed with time. But maybe we brought this on ourselves as parents with all the warnings:
"10 more minutes and we’ve got to go."
"Five minute warning"
Nothing happens suddenly anymore. No more tyrannical, arbitrary parenting. Now it’s all kid-gloves and appropriate.
Literally, the other day I heard a mom say, “30 seconds and we’re leaving.” I’m like: GET THE FUCK OUT OF HERE.Comments
Should I be worried that my daughter is giving herself repeated Dutch Ovens?Comments
I have a mostly sweet and fairly well-behaved 10-year-old son. But sometimes he is really mean to Siri (the simulated assistant on my phone’s operating system). He’ll say things like, “You’re a stupid idiot, Siri.” Do you think we should punish him for statements like these? If he ever called an actual person a stupid idiot, he would be in huge trouble.
