Worried you’re parenting your child wrong? (and maybe possibly scarring them for life?)
→Stream a Choose Your Own Adventure Movie with them…
→Watch them pick to comfort a dying pig and not make it about themself… (Choose: A. “I need you!” ✔️B. “I’m here for you.”)
→Shrivel up into a weeping ball of you own tears. 😭
