Does anyone talk about the amount of brainwashing that comes with being raised by abusive parents? As children we are conditioned to love our parents because of how much time we spend together, and despite the abuse there will be good times thrown in as well; and you may even be exposed to your abusive parents' history of abuse evoking a strong sense of sympathy and loyalty to your parents. All of this doesn't negate the fact that you parents are being toxic towards you, belittling you, stepping all over your boundaries, blaming you & scapegoating you, physically hitting you & neglecting giving you the love, affection, and attention you need. It is so SO hard to break that programming in our brains that tells us to love our parents regardless of how they've treated us-- let alone the way society glorifies parenting at every corner with statements like, "your parents gave you life, you must always respect them no matter what," failing to realize that abusive parents exist. It took me years to finally break that programming and finally see my mother for who she is: a toxic bitch who no longer has access to my life. It is one of the hardest things about recovery, and I don't think it's talked about enough.

Parenting 101: When the kids are noisy, feed them snacks.
Barn swallows, like the ones seen here at Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge, are voracious insectivores. Not only that, they are "aerial insectivores," meaning that they eat flying insects caught in the air!

Gentle Reminder: Please set standards for the people you want in your life. It's not selfish. It's not rude. It's imperative. You are allowed to determine who gets access to you. You are allowed to want people in your life who make you feel light and supported. You can set that standard. It's your life. Don't forget that.
Stay Positive! ❤️

There’s a piano in the gym at our kids’ school. Today, our son Boone asked the P.E. teacher if he could play something before class got started. The teacher said yes, so Boone crossed to it... and played the coffin dance meme song. All of the other students erupted in applause.

On the whole I think the kids have been dealing well with the huge shift back to school this fall, but each of them have had their moments where it just comes out in unexpected ways. Tonight’s bedtime has been one of them. Doing my best to offer calm and comfort, and really hoping they’ll just crash out here and sleep. Tomorrow morning may be a bit of a rough one for them if they don’t.

The Child's current second block teacher is just...ugh
I hear constant micromanaging, calling out/shaming individual students by name (I'm sure this teacher would deny it's ~shaming~ and instead go for some empty words like "teaching responsibility"), and makes the kids compete against each other for "fun" activities, while calling out the in-progress results of the competition like it's a horse race (the prize is a few bonus points on the next test...which...sure seems to me like it's rewarding the kids who already know the material...) (and this is not ~sour grapes~ because The Child usually does place well enough to win bonus points. which he doesn't need. because he does well in the class, despite the teacher)
I suspect there's a lot of "here's how to teach virtual classes that keep all students engaged!" thought going on, but none of the other teachers use these approaches, so there's probably a larger amount of "that's just how this teacher is"

My five month old daughter just bit down on her own fingers and hurt herself, then as soon as I got her calmed down from that, she did the exact same thing with her other hand. Like, good on her for checking to make sure it wasn't just the ONE hand, I guess?
We finally got her redirected to her teething toys, but damn.

Generational spin-off media is like “okay, what would be the most in-character way for the previous show’s protagonist to comprehensively fail as a parent?”

Ya las paredes... Dirán mudas sin palabras ... sonidos de verdades; miradas delatoras !! y te señalaran con dedos centenarios acusadores.
Ya los muros carnales... de nuestro cuerpo sobreviviendo, mostraran sus tatuajes al vencedor del tiempo, y se desgarrará de algas ... " su océano siniestro " fluyendo en torrentes ya apagados, experiencias, errores y sueños.
Ya las paredes... estarán pintadas de enigmas por las manos espectrales, en yacentes y espesas tintas que de nuestro ego nacen... "como fértiles manantiales ".
( Ya las paredes... delataran mis conjuros, mis luchas y mis verdades )

Some more examples, just cause. The trend of asking for someone’s personal information just seems to be growing on Among Us. A report button of some kind would be cool. Like every other game I join is asking where someone lives or their age. I was in a game labeled TEEN ONLY (I’m 23, I LIED) just too... see. This grown person was giving out their snap. In another game I’m 75% sure it was 2 creeps working together. One pretending to be a girl and both them asking Player Red for lots of info about themselves. Anytime I spoke up, I was instantly kicked or banned from the game. People are CREEPS and you need to practice internet safety at all times.

Revolutionary parenting hack:
If your child is in the middle of some activity and clearly enjoying it (and wasn't supposed to be doing something else instead), DO NOT interrupt them and have them do chores that will "only take 5 minutes or so!"
You haven't asked them to do anything before they got out the Legos, started reading a chapter of their book or painting the complicated picture, or began playing their video game.
As a result of being repeatedly interrupted, they will learn that their presence in public space of the household=availability to do chores, so they will make themselves scarce so you can't find them and order them around. They will also become suspicious of your efforts to engage with them as they play, as they've learned that these pleasantries are a prelude to "Take out the trash", or "move your boots and vacuum the entryway, there's dirt everywhere ".
"But I need my children to help me around the house!", I hear you cry. I understand. Children should not be treated like royalty and left to their own devices 24/7.
An alternative is to give the kids a clearly delineated chore chart and stick to it, resisting the urge to add anything to it. There are some chores that are easier and quicker with two people, though. A (in my opinion) even better option is to divide the child's day into "on-duty" and "off-duty " time. When they're on-duty, you can interrupt them as before, but you have *consulted with your child beforehand * and they understand that during this time they can relax, but they must be ready to jump in and lend a hand.
That way they won't start trying to level up in their video game or break out the clay and make stuff. When they are off-duty, you leave them alone and their only responsibilities are to clean up whatever mess they make at the end of this time.
Also, if they are tearing around the house or whining about being bored, don't make them do chores so they will "have something to do"; this could make the child conflate extra chores with punishment for whining and make them reluctant to help out when you randomly tell them to at other times because they might think they're being punished but they have NO IDEA WHAT THEY DID. And IMO children should see chores as things everyone has to do no matter what, not punishments.
I may seem unqualified to offer parenting advice as I have no kids, but I was talking with my dad today and he said: "I wish you didn't hide from us in your room so much, but every time your mom walked by she'd give you a chore to do, so I can't blame you for that." A kid who hides in their room to play has an entirely different relationship to the family than the child who sprawls on the livingroom floor and excitedly describes the city they are building out of Legos.
And today, in times of Covid I play a complicated game of hide-and-seek with my mother as I try to do my online coding homework and apply for jobs. I am now attempting to turn my bedroom into my own tiny office because if I work in our home office, she'll find me and go "I can't attach this file to my email," and so on.
Children *have* to obey their parents when they are young. But true respect and honoring collective responsibilities is stronger than forced obedience. If you demonstrate to your children that you respect them and their time, they will reciprocate.
