Janelle Hanchett

I am a woman. Thirty-one years old with three children: Ava, 9, Rocket, 5, and Georgia, 6 months. I am married to Mac, my best friend and partner in crime for the last 10 years. We are an erratic offbeat family with big ideas and inevitably poor execution. We like to go to the beach on a whim, even though it's 2 hours away. We take our kids to bluegrass festivals and dance dance dance. We like rock and roll. Sometimes our boy wears pink. Sometimes I yell and scream and act like a really bad mom. Sometimes I'm freaking great. We're just a family.

It’s not my job to entertain my children.

It’s not my job to entertain my children.

I do not play imagination games with my children. You know, the “I’ll be the mom and you be the baby” games? Yeah, those. Fuck those. For me, not kids. They’re amazing for kids. Children should do it all day long. But I don’t want to. It’s not fun and it’s not interesting and if I...

To the “angry” women of the internet

If you are a woman, and you critique social, political, or cultural institutions, figures, or narratives through your voice, art, writing, music, or social media, you will be called “angry” and told, directly and indirectly, to “calm down.” Behave better. More pleasant, please. Maybe add a bow to your hair.  If you are a...

How to raise an excellent toddler

Arlo will be two in June. We have entered full-blown toddlerhood. Luckily, he’s my fourth child so I know lots and lots of helpful things about toddler discipline and entertainment and excellence in general. I’m basically an expert. As such, I’ve compiled a list of things I’ve learned in the service of all humanity.  Here...
