Parenting, by the Borg

Snacks are irrelevant

I’ve been streaming Star Trek: Voyager on Netflix, and I think I’ll start talking to my kid like Seven of Nine. There could be standard responses to common child behaviors: whining, wheedling, sleeping, eating, babbling, dressing, grooming, emoting. All that is needed is cool clarity.

Is it OK to just flash memes at your child? Is that an acceptable modern parenting style? Finn can come back from spring break to Borg Mom.

pointless remonstration

I have more. I’ll save them for later. The nice thing is, many of them can be used on adults as well. I like it when a thing can serve more than one purpose. It is most efficient.

    Haaa-HAHAHAHAHA! Ah-HAHA! Do it. I don’t have kids, thus my opinion should count for very little, but do it!

    Just wait until he starts responding in kind. At the age of Grade 2, he’s perfectly capable. You have been warned.

    Have you seen “The Captains”? Shatner interviews all the other series captains. I saw it on (Canadian) Netflix and enjoyed it.

    I also really makes me feel guilty as a viewer to know the cast & crew have to sacrifice 95% of their outside lives while making such shows. I knew this before but it really hits home when I hear the personal stories of actors that have had such an impact on my life. I think most/all of the married ones got divorced and Kate Mulgrew was a single mother when she started.

      I’ll have to watch that; it’s in my queue.

      I remember hearing similar stories from some of the cast members of M*A*S*H, regarding how the shooting schedule is hard on personal and family life.
