Attack Of The Killer Should-Be's

I'm all for celebrating my kid's special-ness and standing up for diversity and fighting for acceptance of the differently-abled, but when it comes to being of a certain school age when conformity is king...

Well, let's just say I'm all for getting her a backpack with Hannah Montana or Justin Bieber or whoever-the-hell is en vogue with the queen bees of second grade if it means she's less likely to be swirlied.

Anyway, that's what my latest Patch article is about. I also talk about punching parents of NT kids in the throat, so there's that too.  CLICK HERE TO READ!!

  1. Anything that involves a good punch to the throat is good with me! =)

  8. I hope your idea for a fake advice column is real!  I love it and would be at your panels disposal.
    "Dear panel, My 5 year old is getting pressured by ALL of her girl-friends to get her ears pierced already! Eeee Gaads!"
    How bout a set of shiny red sound reducing head-phones that she could wear 14 hours of every single day?! NEXT!
