MooPig Parenting Department :: "Parenting in Today's World"

Parenting, the Test of Fire!

Sometimes MooPig Opinion and Editorial Department runs across this " is no longer available. The authors have deleted this blog."

"We know the time is coming when Blogging will be a liability," says Grappler Dorns, editor of Op/Ed. "We can only hope that our attempt to provide our children with a cross section of the world at the turn of the century will survive."

But that is not all there is to it. You see, Timmy, there is a subculture of oblivion underneath all of this, and most everything you put on the Internet is going to go down with the end of Mother Earth in a few billion years. Yes, our blogs, and quips, and twitters, and Reddits will all go into the massive black hole of destiny, and survive.

So will our attempts at parenting. Since we all decided to be immortal and pass on our genetic codes to our unsuspecting bairn, we will genetically be included in the over all scheme of perpetuity. Do you feel better now? I didn't think so. In fact it might make you more anxious.

We take this segue moment to look into a recent book that took a decade to write, and will take us a decade to read.

All too late. "After six our nest is almost empty," laments one father to his wife.

Andrew Solomon's book about parenting abnormal children, "Far from the Tree."
" ... Drawing on forty thousand pages of interview transcripts with more than three hundred families, Solomon mines the eloquence of ordinary people facing extreme challenges.
" ... Many families grow closer through caring for a challenging child; most discover supportive communities of others similarly affected; some are inspired to become advocates and activists, celebrating the very conditions they once feared. Woven into their courageous and affirming stories is Solomon’s journey to accepting his own identity, which culminated in his midlife decision, influenced by this research, to become a parent. ..."
Watch out, Andrew, it will be your test of fire!

Susan Klebold's Story - Business Insider: " ... After such tragedies, people struggle to contemplate why a young person could do something so horrific. In The New York Times, Solomon wrote about interviewing the Klebolds a number of times over eight years to try to find some answers. Here's what he wrote:
" ... I began convinced that if I dug deeply enough into their character, I would understand why Columbine happened — that I would recognize damage in their household that spilled over into catastrophe. Instead, I came to view the Klebolds not only as inculpable, but as admirable, moral, intelligent and kind people whom I would gladly have had as parents myself.
It's impossible not to feel for Susan Klebold when reading her first-hand account of raising a mass murderer, which O Magazine published in 2009." (Erin Fuchs. Jan. 4, 2013, 4:54 PM. HERE) ... "
