Good Parent

Congratulations. You’ve managed to avoid the pitfalls of social stigma and reach an enviable balance between childhood and adulthood. This will not only make you a good parent to your offspring, it makes you a good parent to your inner child.

  1. I scored as a good parent too.

    I came across something earlier today at work that talked about keeping a child’s perspective towards the world and was talking about it with a coworker. I’d read something a few months ago in which a college art professor was asked by his young child what he did for a living, and he said that he taught people how to draw, and his son/daughter’s response was, “You mean that they forget?”

    My test tracked 2 variables How you compared to other people your age and gender:

    You scored higher than 32% on play
    You scored higher than 3% on heart (ouch! wtf does that mean?!)

  3. I am an “adolescent.” I am apparently too sensitive to the pitfalls of social stigma, which I suppose is marginally true…

    “Inner child?” you ask, “Is that like having a baby?” You are your inner child. And it grants you simple, honest emotions which can, ironically, make you feel more mature. On the other hand, you are decidedly isolated in an Adult’s world. Being childlike has an unnecessarily bad reputation, but – remember from childhood – there are both good and bad children.

    Jeesss! Well I guess that explains a lot of things. :\

  6. quesitn

    gee whiz. I am more tired than I realized.

    Random thought: Constant hospital visits are lousy lousy lousy. I think people (as in parents/grandparents) should stay out of the hospital.

  7. I have a bit of experience in this department.

    What stinks is not the visits so much – family members needing care and whatnot, plus hospital staff generally can be pretty cool once you get to know them. But what does stink is getting used to hospital food and whatnot – it’s like dorm food in the sense that after a while you stop tasting the food itself and only really taste the cooking oils that are used on all the food. So the Italian starts tasting like the Chinese starts tasting like the roast beef.

    BTW I scored something like 25% higher on both play and heart – probably not surprising for those of you who know me.

    I’ll say a prayer for your family Lori. We’ve got a similar situation brewing with one of my friends out here. All I’ll say is that people in entertainment can be great as the life of the party and absolutely horrible to their friends in terms of their own self-destructive behavior.
