Lately, a lot of blogs with the topic of “Unwanted Parenting Advice” (UPS) have popped up on my radar. My unsolicited gift of advice for “Perpetual Parenting Advice Givers” (PPAG) is as follows:
Unless your advice or “look of disdain” toward another parent, is TRULY rooted in a place of concern for the well-being of the child/parent, your unsolicited advice is a truly a reflection of YOUR character, not that of the parent or child.
Footnote? for my short blog:
I have like 67859 unfinished blogs , including on from today, I am either too long winded and verbose or too abrupt and vapid. Twitter and Word Press make me want to put forks in my eyes. Do writers ever find their “HAPPY PLACE?” or is it always this tortured abyss of a soul wrenching masterpiece, or my new favorite quote du jour is “a cyclical OCD ADHD projectile future apocalyptic vision of organized anarchy.”
This blog is like the ridiculous sweater I bought at Anthropologie a few years ago. It was on sale and the sales lady told me "it looks awesome on you." It's the most bizarre sweater, and whether it looked good on me or not, is highly debatable. Like these blogs, I look at them at say "Yeesh, what was I thinking,," or laugh or bath in their cathartic qualities. The sweater stays for the same reasons.
