Knee pads, elbow pads, brain pads… there’s no adventure left in childhood. No stitches. No scars. No proof of survival. No stories to tell… We’ve bubblewrapped an entire generation, mentally and physically, accepted trigger words, created safe places, and Nerfed the World*

This week, I talk about bleeding on the page vs exorcising demons for public consumption, the disappearance of adventures and scars from childhood, and how much blood is really necessary for a bandaid. Join me, and find out WTF all those hashtags are for…

    Liked this one…I too get tired of blaming everyone else for something. If you screw up, own it! We also had similar questions when our kids fell — are you OK? Is there blood? Then we would ask what happened if we didn’t see it. Hopefully makes them more self sufficient.

  • Amber Fallon says:

    I really loved this episode. There were several moments where, rather than my usual pseudo-banter with Kelli, I cheered, applauded, and even once yelled “Fuck yeah!”, which is unusual for me considering it was 4:00 in the morning and I had an hour of cardio kickboxing to look forward to. Well done!

    We all have scars… but Kelli made an awesome point about the scars of childhood being important and significant. If I get to be a mom someday, I want my kid to have scars, too.

Thoughts? Tell me what you think...
