Godfather Death: What qualities do you think make a good parent?
I don’t know how to phrase them as qualities but like, recognising that your kid is a person and not an extension of you, and that no matter how young, their thoughts and emotions are just as valid, even if they’re not old enough to express and understand them like you. and trying hard to retain that sense of wonder, like, not getting jaded as they get older and things don’t seem as exciting because they’re not brand new any more. never ever confusing fear for respect. being able to hold your kid accountable for the bad they do when they genuinely should know better. not giving your kid a free license to do whatever without consequences just because they’re your kid, but also not giving yourself a free license to treat your kid however you want just because you’re their parent. being able to accept that sometimes you don’t know better. patience, love, understanding, etc.
The Star Money: What is your most prized possession?
I don’t have a lot of sentimental items I’d be devastated about losing, so probably like, my laptop or something.
Pinocchio: What is your greatest wish?
safety for people. every form - social, physical, emotional. there being an environment where everyone can grow and learn and thrive without risks outsiders have more of a say in than they do.
