Opinion: Happy Meal Toy Ban Is Just Plain Sad {ParentDish}

May 11th 2010 10:55AM

And what ever happened to "occasionally?" Jeepers, have we all become so brain-dead that the only thing we understand is "all or nothing?" I take my son to McDonalds. Yes, for the toy. I try to give him fresh, healthy food most of the time and the occasionally let him have fast food so he can get the toy.

'My Daddy Had a Hysterectomy' And Fun Other Things Kids Say {ParentDish}

One day my son asked me why the witches dance. I said I didn't understand what he was asking. He said, sure you do Mommy... and to the republic, four witches dance.

My son also had some trouble pronouncing the letter F. When he was first learning his numbers, he would point them out everywhere he spotted them. Of course, when we went to the grocery store and went to check stand 4, he shouted at the top of his lungs, look mommy, a "whore."

SmackDown: Did Air Traffic Dad Really Do Anything So Wrong? {ParentDish}

First, to Frank, why don't YOU stay off the computer until you learn how to write, spell, and punctuate?

I guess what strikes me is the good/bad, right/wrong stance we take with this. Maybe I'm just a fence-sitter, but I think it's rational to be somewhere in the middle. Yes, I think it was irresponsible--although I think the irresponsible act was bringing kids to this type of workplace more than whether they got to speak into the radio. (If the kid's behind you and he screams "ouch," do you take your eyes off of what you're doing?) On the other hand, I doubt that this is the worse violation of air traffic safety ever. If the controller has an otherwise spotless performance record--and I do mean spotless--the suspension was appropriate. He learned. We learned. Don't take away his livelihood; let him get back to work.
