Let her be funny

Posted on

As the parent of a pre teen daughter the OTL household obviously encourages humour (where else is OTL’s material gonna come from!) indeed one of OTL’s proudest moments was writing a comedy show for the preteen for which she won 3rd in the school talent show. Given OTL’s  lack of success in comedy competitions, it was a major victory.

Comedy is strongly linked to empowerment and intelligence, everyone should want their daughters to grow up being funny.

OTL doesn’t remember much about school but does remember being in chemistry class and getting told off for not washing up the equipment properly. The teacher said “Don’t you do the dishes in your house?” Not wishing to tell the truth which was it was done by the dishwasher, OTL said “No sir, we just throw the fish and chip wrappers in the bin”. OTL doesn’t remember if that earned a detention but OTL does remember internally doing a high five at a witty, sarcastic response.

Below is a great article about comedy and parenting girls.
