#40: It Wasn’t Me
Although we may have a lot of disagreements with our parents growing up, they always have our best interest in mind, and our job is to protect us and make sure we grow up to be respectful responsible adults. Part of their job as parents is also to make sure we don’t hear any songs with profanities before we’re ready, and that means establishing boundaries.
Every parent puts their line somewhere else, and they all have different methods of establishing those boundaries. Some use words to communicate their messages, and others use simple but effective gestures. This mom didn’t want her kids listening to inappropriate songs, and she did what she had to, even if they didn’t like it. To this day, they remember it as a major power move, so maybe she did something right, after all.
