Parenting in Las Vegas

Tinder, Tumblr, EDC, Revenge Porn, Purp, Lean, DTF, “Send Nudes”, Burning Man, Furries, MS13, PUBG, Fortnite, ISIS… TI putting the First Lady as a stripper in the White House for his rap video. America today is just one giant Las Vegas. Parenting in Las Vegas takes on a whole new meaning for parenting. Luckily for me… I am not that old and I know exactly what it is like to grow up today. The point is, your kids are their own sentient beings… and the job of a parent is simply to be the child’s guru into adulthood… that moment when the child is eye to eye in the same world as the parent… as such, it is a simple matter of teaching your kids to navigate the world the same way you did, they will come to the same trials and tribulations that you did… All you can do is guide them through how to navigate those moments the same way you did… or if you feel like you navigated poorly, how to succeed where you failed… Give them something to aim for… The key is to actually have these conversations with your children and just be normal with them… Don’t create a weird wall of separation because you are the parent… NEWS FLASH… your kids are stuck in Las Vegas just like you are… you and they are in the same boat together now, teach them how to handle it the same way you do…
