It’s ParentNormal Mailbag day. Last Tuesday I shared what was scary good in the ParentNormal News and on Thursday I interviewed Jill Smokler, the creator of the hugely popular parenting website Scary Mommy. So now, I’m answering your scary good questions.
ParentNormal Questions Answered in this Episode:
- I always liked scary stories when I was a kid, but I’m afraid to tell my kids scary stories that might give them nightmares. Do you have a scary story that might find the right balance for kids under 5?
- I don’t understand why my kids are afraid of the dark. Why can’t I explain to them there’s nothing to be afraid of?
- My son asked me if Frankenstein was real and if so who was his daddy? What should I tell my son?
- What are the 10 scariest experiences every parent will face?
About Breaking Down Parenting: A ParentNormal Podcast
Since this episode was originally released, the show has evolved into Breaking Down Parenting: A ParentNormal Podcast. It’s a show that’s for imperfect parents by imperfect parents. Hosted by humorist and imperfect parent of three Chris Cate, every episode breaks down a topic that causes parents to break down, such as putting kids to bed, potty training, the terrible twos, homework, clothing, discipline, cleaning up, cooking for kids, and so on….
By the end of each topic breakdown, parents will hopefully realize they aren’t alone in their struggles and that the craziness all parents go through is actually quite funny when it’s looked at in the right light. After all, the mission of the show is to help parents laugh when they want to cry.
