Choose Your Own Adventure, Parenting Style

Tablet Magazine’s Marjorie Ingall has created a brilliant parody of the Choose Your Own Adventure books that I grew up on: Planet of the Helicopter Parents . The art and the dead-on language sucked me right back to sixth grade, and I couldn’t resist clicking my way through to find every ending. I’m proud to say that despite choosing to serve Dunkin Munchkins for snack, I still got anointed as “the best parent ever.”
