However, there is one song that I have hated my entire life. A song that makes my skin crawl. A song that will always make me change the radio station. “Cat’s in the Cradle” is a 1974 folk rock song by Harry Chapin from the album Verities & Balderdash.
The song is too depressing, and I still hate it. Apparently my children feel the same way, because they now throw a fit anytime they hear it.
The song was highlighted in an episode of the Middle.
Here is the original scene. I am a fan of the Middle – Here is a post that I dedicated to the show. The Middle will give parents an outside perspective of the issues facing emerging adults – with ALOT of laughter.
The second video definitely lightens the mood. Here is the video.
While in the midst of raising your children, remember that like other life stages – emerging adulthood has its trials and blessings.
Remember to minimize the trials, and focus on the blessings.
