Helicopter Parents on Easter
Today’s editorial cartoon is for all the parents of precious children who have ruined Easter Egg Hunts for the rest of the world. From Georgia to Colorado, Easter Egg Hunts, a tradition for Christian children on Easter, have been cancelled due to helicopter parents.
Seems some parents feel the need to make sure their kids win at any cost including jumping into the fray, knocking down other kids, just to make sure their precious child get an egg. Sure there were probably some over aggressive kids that should have been reigned in by their parents but that shouldn’t result in chaos on what should be a kids event.
Want to make sure your kid walks away with an egg or two. If they start coming back empty handed, drop a few eggs you brought near your feet and exclaim “oh look you missed one” Or better yet, teach your kid how to deal with and overcome disappointment.
When I started this site 5-6 years ago, I expected it to be a hit within a year, have a book deal within 18 months and have Hollywood calling to option my work within three years. Guess what, none of that happened. And if my parents hadn’t taught me how to deal with disappointment, I would be curled up in a fetal position in the corner instead of posting this gem.
