Parenting Yondu Style

Michael Rooker plays Yondu, the spiritual warrior.

This past weekend the family saw Guardians Of the Galaxy Vol. 2, a fine film, full of cute dancing tree creatures, special affects of the galactic variety, and...wait for it...parenting advice!

The plot centers around Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), working out the complicated relationships with his biological father, Ego (no, really, that was his name), who wanted to kill him, and his adoptive father, Yondu, who just repeatedly said he wanted to eat him.

What the audience saw was a conflicted Yondu who barred his emotions to his son when the going got tough, even though his motley crew of Ravagers mocked him for his sensitivity.

So what can we learn from Yondu's example? Below are some Yondus and some Yondon'ts:

  • Hug kid often;
  • Talk about feelings;
  • Enjoy the humor of telling the kid you will eat him.

  • Do not let kid have prolonged exposure to firearms;
  • Do not turn kid over to homicidal space dude, even if he is biological father;
  • Do not go into space without a space suit.
Hopefully, this will help others be as spiritual as Yondu.

  5. Carnage, genocide, hijacks, refugees, terror-attacks, ethnic conflicts are so normal these days that it would take another Bertolt Brecht, with his new age Alienation Effect to sensitize the world to the true depths of its evil. These are forms of violence inconceivable even for the most daring of the Modernist avant garde minds. Today we see art standing powerless and mute in the face of the gruesomeness of experience.
