You’re Better Than That
Just like smartphones, we try to keep the television away from our kids too so that they don’t grow up addicted to screens. Elaine overheard an excellent case of what she considers good parenting at Target. This little eight-year-old was begging his mom to let him watch Curious George when they get home.
Most parents much rather have their kids reading or doing something more productive than just spend the day watching television. Elaine heard the mother respond, “You’re 8 years old and neurotypical you don’t need to watch Curious George”. Although the child was sad, he will be thankful when he’s older and a little genius.
