#Parenting #Thread

Most people are aware of terrible effects of abusive parenting. Narcissistic and uncaring parents usually top the list of bad parenting models.

In clinical practice i see one more personality quality to be corrosive but almost unknown to people.
This personality characteristic is high level of anxiety in one parent or both.

Parent's anxiety is often disguised as "care". And this is the real root of the problem.
Anxious people in powerful position of a parent can become extremely controlling. Their worldview of 🌎 being a nasty place can percolate into child's worldview.

What other option does the child have?

March 2008. I had one kid and a second was on its way. 11 years living in a city with no family and the majority of my friends were grad students who - even then - couldn't afford to stay in Vancouver after graduating. #TwitterRequiem 1/11
Twitter was a way to connect with new people with similar interests. Most of them geeky, many of them outgoing introverts. Tweet ups. For whatever reason, GenX seemed to really embrace this medium. 2/11
None of my friends had kids. But I found a parenting community here, local, across Canada, and worldwide. @alexishinde @tjrossingol @Nicole013 @buzzbishop @Stv @anndouglas 3/11

"Mommy, sometimes a part of me feels like it would be easier to have a different mommy. Not always and not me fully. Am I hurting you by saying this?" I have been preparing for 2 years to answer this question & I aced it! #parenting in #NEISVoid #LongCovid #motherhood🧵1/n
First, I lightened the mood my saying "believe me, I would like to be a different person as well, in a different body". He smiled immediately.
Next, I acknowledged that his thoughts were perfectly rational & had no malice at all. 2/n
I went on to explain that I was not upset. He simply wants to go on playdates with friends without worrying about infecting mommy & making her more sick, or go eat out in restaurants or not be the only kid in class masking. Any kid would want that, any adult would too! 3/n

My mother raised 3 kids- all 3 went to IIT, then IIM & doing well in their lives.
Based on my own childhood and journey of raising 2 little daughters, some insights on parenting.

Please retweet for wider reach. 🧵
Tell them they can do anything.
Tell it so often that they start believing it. That belief will define their destiny
Let them fall.
Let them jump and play and fall and get hurt. Don't jump in to pick them up. Only then will they learn to get up from a failure, dust themselves up and keep walking

I think it should be OK to write about our autistic kids. I do. I think other parents, esp. those not autistic themselves or new to autism, need parent role models who do their best to understand & love their autistic kids, & be the parents those kids need them to be. Thread. 1/
(You won't need to unroll; this thread is drawn from a TPGA article titled The Toxicity of Autism Parent Memoirs:….)

#autism #parenting 2/
Parent role models are needed bc media messages/social attitudes about autism & autistic people are consistently fear-ridden & awful, so parents primed on autism negativity need guidance for accepting who their kids are—so they can avoid blaming their kids for who they aren’t. 3/

I’ve heard this said about my son on more than one occasion, “he seems to think he can do what he wants, and doesn’t have to do something if he doesn’t want to.”

Um, well, yes.

He’s a human being after all, with free will and autonomy.

I often hear parents saying - we have told him/her that if you are not great in studies, it is okay. We can make you a sportsman/businessman!

My heart sinks when I hear this.
Let's talk about the "sportsman" part of this.
#Thread i
As a child, if you want to take up any sports as a serious persuit in life, you aim for the international stage.
Being in top 5/10 in the world, Olympic medal, representing India at international level, etc.

This would be a reasonable goal for a child (less than 10yr).
Unless you have that kind of ambition / desire / 🔥 in you, professional sports is not really your thing.

@bariweiss thank you for a wonderful #Honestly episode on #parenting. It really got me thinking about my last 18yrs and what advice I would give to future parents like you! (congrats, btw). Here are 10 things I would say: 🧵
@bariweiss 1) Parenting is a team sport. You and your spouse/co-parent have to be on the same page. There is strength in being a unified front.
@bariweiss But, while it "takes a village", *you* are the parents. Not a judgey neighbor, your father(-in-law) or a "helpful" passerby. *You* make the decisions that are best for your child.

Today is my appa's birthday and of course I wished him good health & peace, expressing my love. He said something that shook me: "You've made me worthy of my life." 1/ #parenting
As someone who grew up with a yearning for approval from my father, this should have felt amazing. Strangely, it didn't. I mean it felt nice to hear, sure, but I felt no sense of achievement or pride or vindication. That, to me, is the true achievement here! 2/
It has taken years of therapy and living through endless struggles to realise what a good (albeit flawed) person I am - someone who never gives up & is always there for those who need me. That is enough. That should be enough. 3/

You know how groomers & CRT lovers always say “It’s all just taught in college?” Well they’re right. Here are current books aspiring teachers are studying.

This is the type of policies being pushed into K-12 school children by radicals disguised as “it’s just about kindness & love”. They’re brainwashing your children with political & gender propaganda all the while telling them to not trust you, their own parents. Take action!

Have we failed in bringing up.our ‘modern’ kids?

A very distressed neighbour shared that he had driven home after a long day at work. As he entered, he saw his wife in bed with fever. She had laid out his dinner on a tray.

Everything was there just as he wanted it. The dal, vegetables, salad, green chutney, papad and pickles… ”How caring,” he thought,
“Even when she is unwell, she finds the strength to do everything for me.”

As he sat down to eat, he realised that something was missing.

He looked up at his grown up daughter, who was watching TV and said,

Beta (child), can you get me my medicine and a glass of water, please?

She rolled up her eyeballs to show her displeasure at being disturbed, but did the favour nevertheless.

TIP #1: Eliminate network / live television. The majority of new shows are filled with gender indoctrination & even if you’ve vetted the program, the commercials are filled with propaganda.
TIP #2: Curate your library that your child can select from either through purchased streaming or DVD’s. There are tens of thousands of appropriate & wholesome content that will encourage your child that aligns with your family values.

1/ School superintendent flat out lies to parents to keep CSAM grooming books in Texas schools @McKinneyISD. He blames, "political agendas, sensationalism, and exaggeration." He is a #groomer.

#edchat #parenting @SenTedCruz @mass_tx @RonnyJacksonTX…
"McKinney ISD in no way supports obscene or pornographic materials of any kind in our public-school libraries."

False. He doesn't tell you his definition of those terms means only those already adjudged as much by a judge and only on a case by case basis.
"On rare occasion, it is possible that a book ... could slip through the cracks...."

False. He doesn't tell you his books come from lists recommended by others that are known to make inappropriate materials available and other superintendents aren't so fooled.
