Happy Thanksgiving, parents! Today might not be the most leisurely parenting day of the year, but I believe you all will get through it. If you’ve got little kids running around the kitchen while you’re trying to baste your turkey, I’m sorry. I’m also sorry if you’ve got teenagers who either try to help and can’t do anything useful or refuse to help in the kitchen. If you’ve got kids who are at the perfect age where they’re too young to help much but young enough to sit in front of the TV watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, staying out of the way, good for you.
You’re about to enter prime “threatening your kids with Santa” season, and I support you all the way. Nothing will whip a kid into shape better than their fear of the naughty list. If your kids are on the naughty list now, but won’t be in a month, then these parenting tweets might be relatable.
