Rate Your Parenting: The Latest Craze!

December 16th, 2010  |  by  |  Published in Uncategorized  |  3 Comments

Motherlode, a wholly owned subsidiary of Dadwagon International, points us to 22 Words, a clever little blog that recently posed the following “pointed” parenting-related questions:

  1. Would you want to be your child?
  2. If not, how much of the reason why is you?

And so, in the interest of following up in Internet fads, we ‘wagoneers have decided to provide you our answers to the questions. You know, because this is the kind of easy-to-write blog content that sustains us. Anyway, here we go!


  1. Sure.
  2. n/a


  1. Uh, what? This question, particularly the follow-up, insinuates that the the normal answer is that you should want to be your child. I’m sympathetic to the whole live-through-your-kid urge, but still: I’m happy being me, and they’re going to have  just as easy/tough a road as I did or my wife did. Just in their own way.
  2. See above.

More to come throughout the day! Keep checking back, and in the meantime take our little poll:

    @Nathan: I don’t think it means ‘Would you PREFER to be your child?’ It’s more ‘How would you like it if you were your child?’

    Bleh. I need more than 22 words.
