What "Archie the Republican Dog" Knows About Parenting

Not much really. He’s been fixed.

But he still likes to play! Unfortunately, he destroys his toys. Chews them to shreds. And I have to buy new ones. Except when I spend a lot of time playing with him and his toys. Then I don’t have to keep buying him toys.

My cats fight all the time. I think one’s jealous that I spend too much time with the other one. But when I spend a lot of time with both, they aren’t stressed and they don’t fight. Sometimes it starts by one being playful. But when I spend time playing with both, they don’t seem to start those sorts of fights.

There’s something for parents here. Spend money on video games, and they’ll spend their time on them. But they’ll also fight. They’ll break them. Who knows? But worry less about buying stuff like that for them, and you’ll be able to spend more time with them.
