I made up this little song that can be sung about virtually anything the kids come up with. Mostly my daughter wants me to sing about trees and her friends at daycare. My son is a little more creative and comes up with a huge range of things to sing about.
This morning as we were driving to the park for a hike, my son’s request was, “Mommy I want you to sing about I love my penis!”
“No I will not sing about your penis!”
I think that’s just a good rule for any family to have. Setting boundaries is very important in the whole scheme of parenting. On the other hand, you still want to encourage creativity.
“You can sing about your penis if you want to, but mommy doesn’t sing songs about penises.”
See, boundaries and creativity.
