Nerd Church! - Happy Mother's Day!
Hope you and your mother have a fab Mother's Day!
I know I couldn't be without the support of both my mam and dad. They're fabulous.
Another excuse to show love to people who mean the world to us: just fab!
As a side-note: should there be more parents present in books?
In YA, often parents are either absent, or so useless that they may as well be.
I know this makes it easier for the plot - not easy to have your hero/heroine put themselves in dangerous situations if their parents keep dragging them home kicking and screaming; but come on, writers! Step it up!
It's the same in adult fiction though - people don't stop having parents just because they're now adults. You don't wake up on your 18th birthday and not recognise the people who gave you life and/or raised you - and then stride out into the world, never to speak to them again.
Why don't protagonists call their parents more? Y'know, just to catch up or something?
Do you agree? Or have I lost it even more than usual?
Nerd Church is a weekly post where I rabbit on about various issues. Feel free to continue the discussion, but please link back here :)
