What are you most proud of in the last year?
Getting my cataract surgery, so I can see without wearing glasses.
If you see a puddle on the ground, do you walk around it or give in to the child within and splash about?
My puddle splashing days are long behind ne now.
Do you feel free? Why or why not?
I have a lot of freedom and that probably shows best in my writing, as no subject is taboo for me. I come here to have fun and if I write something that is not appropriate for a 10-year-old to read, well I didn’t invite them here in the first place and it is not my responsibility to control what somebody else’s children are doing.
What life skills are rarely taught but are extremely useful?
People should be taught how to be a parent and just because you are old enough to have sex, that does not mean that you are capable of raising a family. People need a license to drive a car, but any idiot can have a kid. The best way to learn about parenting is probably by watching how your own parents raised you, that is if you came out alright from the experience. Divorce is much more prevalent now and this harms most children. There are probably some articles in magazines that would be helpful, but mostly once that kid pops out, you are on your own. If you don’t interact with your children, their brains will never develop properly.
I am very grateful to Di for explaining how I can block spammers.
