Parenting Myths

Yeti. Godzilla. Mermaids. Dragons. A husband who cooks dinner and does the dishes, then puts the kids to bed while the wife reads a magazine and relaxes.

If your first thought was "No such husband exists," you're correct. Nor do yeti, dragons or mermaids. They're myths, and obvious ones at that. The realm of parenting has its own myths as well, some of which have become deep-rooted and unquestioned beliefs. Some of them do have a grain of truth in them and fit in with modern notions about child development. But this is precisely why they are even more dangerous since they're hard to dispel. And because it's our children we're talking about, they're not harmless tales but beliefs that can shape your actions and the child's development. So get to know these big myths and...move beyond them.
