In my family, I am the firstborn. The one that would need to go through all the strict parenting because your parents don't have any clue yet. You're their first try. The experiment. The desperate "let's not fuck this up!". How strict is "too strict"? And how fast does this first kid need to learn … Continue reading Unleash the big sister!

Normally, I don't write … Continue reading Sarah Survived
