Kevin Brennan Writes About What It's Like

Our Children Are Not Our Children

Our Children new 3
Poet Kahlil Gibran has said, Your children are not your children. In this collection of short-shorts, Kevin Brennan (Parts Unknown) turns that simple idea on its head with five case studies in bad parenting. From a father who won’t pull over to let his boy pee on the roadside to a couple who unwisely lock their twin toddlers in a closet all day while they’re at work, these parents embody the adage that it takes a village — to save innocent kids from idiots like them!

    Great monotone reading and background music. Chilling tale told well.

    Daycare: Wow, sad and powerfully told. I like the voice, and how the story is told… let me add: amazing. The background music? Perfect, and I don’t even like piano.

      Glad you liked it! I jumped for joy when I found that Chopin to play in the background.

    Are these fiction or true life reports?

      Fortunately, they’re entirely fiction. Though life has been known to be stranger than fiction at times, eh? 😐

        Whew!! I’ve encountered enough horrible stories from real life to find just the synopsis all too probable. 😛 Thanks for the answer!
