Question from Quora: Why do some parents give their kids horrible first names?

I personally think it’s a power trip. They don’t see their children as separate human beings with their own needs, wants, characters and lives, but as toys or even property of themselves. My niece’s husband named their first child after marijuana. That told me everything I needed to know about how he saw his child.Continue reading “Question from Quora: Why do some parents give their kids horrible first names?”

Halloween: More Than Just a Day

When I was a kid in the ’50s, Halloween wasn’t just a day; it was an event. First, there was a costume parade at school along with a party in our classroom, and then a school carnival (at least at my elementary school), and then coming home and waiting until it finally got dark andContinue reading “Halloween: More Than Just a Day”

Questions from Quora: Sterilize

How come people who don’t want children don’t get sterilized? Yes it’s their bodies and it’s up to them but why run the risk of getting pregnant if you “don’t want children”. I wonder if they’d feel the same if they couldn’t have children at all. That’s a great theory until you examine the facts.Continue reading “Questions from Quora: Sterilize”

Questions from Quora: Name Change

My 17-year-old daughter wants to change her name. She’s wanted to change her name for many years and will pay for it. Should I let her? I’ll never understand why parents think that their children should be thrilled about being saddled with a name the parents like. My niece just recently adopted her two granddaughtersContinue reading “Questions from Quora: Name Change”

Questions from Quora: How do I get my parents to respect and treat me like an adult?

The simple answer is to act like an adult. How you do that is difficult for a lot of people no matter what their age. Do you take responsibility for your actions, or do you blame others? Do you do the things you need to do without being prompted, or does someone constantly have toContinue reading “Questions from Quora: How do I get my parents to respect and treat me like an adult?”

Question from Quora: Parental Involvement

What is the biggest barrier to parental involvement in children’s education? Getting parents to understand that their children still need them to be involved in their kid’s lives, even at school, and even in high school. We discovered that kids who had their parents involved as volunteers at school, felt more secure and did betterContinue reading “Question from Quora: Parental Involvement”

Questions from Quora: Children’s Chores

If excessive homework is cutting too much into the time needed for children to complete chores, should concerned parents suggest to the teachers that less homework be set? I guess it depends on your priorities. For me, it would be allowing my children to get the best education possible. So I would back off onContinue reading “Questions from Quora: Children’s Chores”

Questions from Quora: Advice

What advice would you give to a 14 year old? Learn as much about everything as you can, even if it’s not taught at school, church, and at home. Read. Read. Read. Read books on all topics. Read newspapers, magazines, webpages, blogs. Try to keep an open mind about everything you read. Reflect on whatContinue reading “Questions from Quora: Advice”
