Parenting done right?

as found on imgur, hey at least I gave credit

EVERY YEAR, MY WIFE AND I DEVOTE
THE MONTH OF NOVEMBER TO
CONVINCING OUR CHILDREN THAT,
WHILE THEY SLEEP, THEIR PLASTIC
DINOSAUR FIGURES COME TO LIFE.
It began modestly enough. The kids woke up to
discover that the dinosaurs had gotten into a box of
cereal and made a mess on the kitchen table.
The next morning. the dines had climbed onto the
kitchen counter to raid the fruit bowl
The morning after that, they had managed to breach
the refrigerator and help themselves to a carton of
eggs. "," we heard our girls whisper. "Mom and
Dad are not going to like this."
Things quickly escalated from there. More often than
not, the dinos' antics were less than tidy. They are
dinosaurs, after att.
To be fair, they did clean up after themselves from time
to time.
Usually, though, the dinosaurs are just like anybody
to have a good time.
WHY DO WE DO THIS? BECAUSE IN THE AGE OF
PADS AND NETFLIX. WE DONT WANT OUR KIDS TO
LOSE THEIR SENSE OF WONDER AND IMAGINATION.
IN A TIME WHEN THE ANSWERS TO ALL THE
WORLD' S QUESTIONS ARE A WORDSEARCH AWAY,
WE WANT OUR KIDS TO EXPERIENCE A LITTLE
MYSTERY. ALL IT TAKES IS SOME TIME AND
ENERGY, CREATIVITY. AND A FEW PLASTIC
DINOSAURS.
CHILDHOOD IS FLEETING, SO LET' S MAKE SURE ITS
FUN WHILE IT LASTS.

Man, I remember back when I was a toddler, what it was like on a few Christmas Eves.

We kept the tradition of putting up the Christmas tree and decorating it right on the Christmas Eve evening, before supper/Christmas dinner.
And I KNEW that once that **** was up, Santa was close. Was perfectly convinced that the old ****** moved with Flash speed, always when I wasn't watching.

So besides the usual when you wake up to the presents under the Christmas tree, I remember a few occasions when my mom took me to take a bath to get ready for dinner, ************* Santa already left when I got out, or when my older cousin took me out for a stroll under the snowfall (I ******* LOVE snow and when its snowing) for 10 minutes or so - Santa of course came when we were away.

Now I'm bloody 24, thinking about the day when we'll have kids and WE will get to be Santa.
But what I learned from all this? If you wanna be Santa for your kids, you gotta learn to be darn sneaky. Kids are curios basterds that won't shut an eye all night waiting for Santa given the occasion...

Sorry for the somewhat off-topic tl;dr, but OP reminded me how much kids are willing to believe in magic (hey, don't judge me, I really wished some stuff like the cupboard from "The Indian In the Cupboard" -nice film to watch- were real) and how easy it is to make them as happy as their little hearts can be

I'm getting a twinge of nostalgia, for the bygone days of youth when magic was real, and we didn't have things like school shootings and dirty politics and Zimmerman and world wars to deal with. I know when I look at this post, I start to ache deep down inside, and miss that care-free imagination and curiosity and that magical lack of self-consciousness I had when I was in elementary school.

**** it, I'm gonna rant.

I miss the ages gone by. Not specifically the 90's, just any time before 9/11, because the world just seemed a little more cheerful before that. I really miss the days when people weren't glued to their "smart"phones. I miss the times when people had manners, and stupidity wasn't a pandemic. Remember the last time you turned on the news and saw something happy or hope-inspiring?

Me neither. **** guys, can we all just start making this country a better place already? Get involved in **** and let people know we don't want to live in a nation of gloom and paranoia, we want to be happy. Let's try to erode some of the awfulness away, instead of living in the past, because the 90's and the 80's are over. Go out and play music with your friends instead of playing Skyrim all night. Get outside and try to disconnect a little from technology, it feels like a breath of fresh air. It's time to lead ourselves, our little brothers and sisters and our children into a better time.
I can't stress that enough, guys. If you have little brothers and sisters, get involved in their lives. Try to be a good role model and keep things like "Please" and "Thank you" and "You were right Anon, Jurassic Park is awesome!" alive. Cause they're our future. Despair isn't going to help, even though I feel it every time there's another school shooting, or a government shutdown or whatever.

I remember when my Dad would spend the better part of an hour setting up adventures for our GI Joes. Those were the best times ever.

Absolutely no sarcasm; that's some ******* good parenting.

Seriously, though. You're subversively teach them that some dark **** happens in the world before they get to the age where they figure it out. That's a good thing to do to prepare them for the sinister ******* world we live in.

I like what they're doing, but the speech and caps lock at the end kind of ruins it.

Like they aren't doing it for their kids, but in spite of society. Changes it from "We're doing it because we want our kids to be happy!" or something similar to "WE'RE DOING THIS BECAUSE WE DISAGREE WITH SOCIETY."

How does Netflix or iPad games ruin a kid's sense of wonder and imagination? I can attest that many of my imagination sprees were fueled by a game I played or a show I watched, rather than them ruining that.
