What Is Traditional Parenting

As my readership increases, I have been questioned on a number of occasions about what my definition of Old School Parenting was and it struck me that there is a number of misconceptions out there about what it means to be an Old School Parent. When people see the title Old School Parenting they seem […]

Interesting Year For Parenting Old School

I like to look back every once in a while and check out which of my blog post have been most popular over the year and this has been a relatively good year for Parenting Old School. This blog has been around in various forms over the past few years but has only existed as Parenting Old […]

Fifty Dangerous Things

For some strange reason, our society has decided that our children are in mortal danger all the time. It is a world where parents constantly fear for their children and their physical wellbeing. It is a world where a superficial flesh wound on our child’s flawless fresh flesh is unacceptable. It has become a world where every activity […]

Backpack

I have to say, I don’t get the backpack phenomenon. I don’t think I had anything to carry my books in until I was in at least grade 7.

The Pampered Child – Formerly Known As "Spoild Rotten Little Brat"

Children today are without question a privileged lot. They have access to more services, more products, more activities and more attention from the adults in their life than we ever did.  Society has unwittingly or perhaps wittingly created a world where the wants of our children supersede all else.
