It’s Not All Mary Poppins

Emma shows her Grit

There’s a new post up at PiP, featuring my youngest, Emma. I think you’ll find it entertaining. It’s part of our “True Grit” series.

True Grit, you ask??

True Grit posts are tales from the parenting frontier, stories featuring non-PC, creative, unconventional, and effective parenting techniques. Probably they’re techniques you wouldn’t openly discuss at Mom’s Group for fear of outraged gasps and disapproving looks. But they are techniques that worked for you and your child.

Do you have such a tale? We want to hear it! (If you’re curious, you can find a couple of True Grit examples here and here.)

[Of course, techniques considered abusive will NOT be included. Stories of spanking or any other form of hitting (though it is generally considered non-PC these days) will also not be included because spanking is very conventional, and strikingly lacking in creativity – been used since the dawn of time, don’t you know…]

So, please, email us at partners_in_parenting at yahoo dot com if you have a tale to tell!
