It’s Not Your Mom and Dad’s Parenting

By Lisa Belkin

So much of how you parent is shaped by how you were parented. There are things you do in the same way, because you see them as correct, or wise, or because they’re the only way you know. And there are things that you deliberately do differently — because your own mom and dad messed those up, or times have changed, or your children have different needs.

Rules For Work

1.  Never give me work in the morning.   Always wait until 4:00 and then bring it to me.  The challenge of a deadline is refreshing.

Vegas Driving Rules

1. First, it’s pronounced LOSS-VAYGUS. It doesn’t matter how they say it in other places.

Nevada is not ne voh dah….its ne vA dah

2. Forget the traffic rules you learned elsewhere. Las Vegas has it’s own set of traffic rules. There’s no book about them. All you can do is get in your car and hope you survive to learn them.

Hint: 10 mph over posted is a good rule of thumb, but see Rule 8.

3. All directions start with, “Go down 95…’cause you don’t want to get on I-15.” Continue reading Vegas Driving Rules
