Golden Nugget

My golden nugget parenting advice is don’t take yourself so seriously. You have got to have a sense of humor or it is just… what are you doing? It’s going to suck for you and for generations to come, you know? You’ve got to laugh at yourself. If you can laugh at yourself, you can step back, you can take a breath, you can disengage from badness. And sometimes, you can even get your kid to laugh with you, you know? And it’s supposed to be joyful, you know? Even the hard stuff. We got to find some joy in some of it. So just chill out a little bit and laugh sometimes.
