Four Is Not The New 30.
So, all parents whose kids are older than 5 years know that the “Terrible Twos” is a complete misnomer and even a joke compared to 3 and 4 year old behavior. 

Aubrey is rapidly careening towards her 4th birthday on June 6 and she is crazier than ever. There’s an uber-irrationality that comes along with 3 and 4 year old mental processing and it’s not worth anybody’s time trying to figure it out. You try to get a straight answer out of a tired 3/4 year old, you get this:

This craziness is a result of Aubrey not wanting to pee before going to the park. Do you now understand why I can’t be on time to anything for the next 14 years?

We don’t use any corporal punishment in our household, but I now know who spankings were invented for. Every once in a while, the temptation is strong, but I’m very fortunate that Aubrey is, in general, a really fun, sweet, easy going kid and actually, quite easy to reason with. No really, she is fairly logical for a kid when she’s in a good mood. It’s only when she’s tired that the beast is released and it always seems to be when I’m the most tired as well. 

It’s all good. Once we get through this crazy 4th year, I hear things get quite lovely until they turn 12 or so. Then I’m supposed to prepare for the return of the beast x ten.

  4. Á, értem. Tehát a kutya szempontja. Enni ad neki, simogatja, megdicséri, elviszi sétálni. Vagy mit tudom én, elviszik egymást sétálni. Énekel neki. Együtt alszik vele. A kutyának nem mindegy, hogy látja-e a gazdija vagy nem?

  7. I’m not against people making niche MMOs, such as a PVP or raid focused one. In fact I’d argue that Team Fortress 2 can be seen as an MMO under certain conditions.In terms of supporting a friendly play environment, I was kinda alluding to it in point 2. The key difference though that instead of just providing grouping and community tools (with all the moderation and support it entails), I’m asking for them to go further. Take a leaf out of firms like Netflix and actively match me with people I’m likely to get on with. It’s this kind of improvement I’d like to see – proactive rather than reactive.
