#Dad6and11: A new series of conversations between a suburban dad and his primary school kids, 6 and 11.
“Tell your kids around the dinner table about how strong grown-ups face these troubles.”
“I hear “it is what it is” a lot, especially in my therapy work. Is it acceptance? Or resignation?”
“Witnessing modern two-party politics, I can’t help but think of two parents fighting bitterly while their kids are forgotten in the heat of battle.”
“Here we were at uni, still learning to read – situations, people, ourselves. We were upgrading our social and emotional instrument panels from child to adult grade.”
“As my 8 year-old son became a Cub, I stepped back to let two new adults and a pack of peers into his life. Nearly three years later, I’m just so glad I did.”
“Our kids see that Coles is so afraid to lose customers who don’t care about the world, that they are willing to lose customers who do.”
