One Parent’s Take on Badminton With Kids


Oh, Mary Carillo, you crack us up.

The Olympics are over, but that doesn’t mean that we don’t still have Olympic fever. And when I came across this during the height of the games, I knew I’d have to share it with the other parents out there. In it, Mary Carillo shares her take on badminton — how backyard badminton differs from the badminton game of the Summer Olympics. I think any parent can relate as she details the game spiraling out of control.

“It has a tree-seeking device stuck in it somewhere.” It always seems to go that way no matter what you’re doing with kids, from things inevitably getting caught in trees to the tools to get said things out of trees getting caught in trees — to realizing you own a dozen basketballs and can’t park your car in the garage because of all the equipment. Well done, Mary, well done

Can you relate to Mary’s take on badminton with kids? —Erin
