Ugh, Parents.

Why? Why will you not let your kid live and learn on his/her own?

All of these parents that were born in the late 70's/early 80's are pushovers. Bubble wrapping their kids from harm and letting them run the household. Gluten free this, vegan that. Wash yourself in purell every five minutes. Don't vaccinate and god forbid you let your child bump their head without a trip to the hospital for an x-ray.

When I was a kid in the 90's we drank from the hose, swung upside-down unsupervised (THE HORROR!) on the jungle gym, swung as high as possible on the swings and then lept off to see who could jump further, and I'm pretty sure most of us ate a little dirt by accident. We're all still alive and most of us turned out ok. (I said most!)

I'm hoping everyday that the people I grew up with, mostly those born from '87-'95 are going to do much better job at regular parenting than some of the previous generation that are really not even parenting. Letting their kids run the house, run their lives and drive the rest of us crazy. Little entitled a**holes that have never been told no by their parents and think they deserve everything on a silver platter because they are special.

You're special alright kid, a little special snowflake just like everyone else. 😜

A.xo.

Ps. Don't even get me started on the 'safe place' rooms in colleges for people who were so sheltered that their fragile egos are damaged by the wrong word.
