Parenting is not all about stuff

The Hoydens are having a great discussion about feminist parenting and how it is actually not, you know, all about depriving your children of pop culture experiences but is, you know, about engaging with your child and the world around you in a conscious and aware sort of a way.

And that, you know, there is actually more to a parent/child relationship and a child's relationship to their world than the stuff they own.

Anyway, as everyone in Melbourne knows, parenting is really all about indoctrinating your child to barrack for the correct team. *

*for people outside Melbourne you can read this sentence as a flippant joke. Melbournians, carry on.
