Great TED Video to Rewatch: “Let’s Talk Parenting Taboos”

4 taboos that parents never, ever admit — and why they should.

Babble.com publishers Rufus Griscom and Alisa Volkman, in a lively tag-team, expose 4 facts that parents never, ever admit — and why they should. Funny and honest, for parents and nonparents alike.

  • Taboo number one: you can’t say you didn’t fall in love with your baby in the very first minute.
  • Taboo number two. You can’t talk about how lonely having a baby can be.
  • Taboo number three: you can’t talk about your miscarriage.
  • Taboo number four: you can’t say that your average happiness has declined since having a child.
