Jason Morehead writes for Christ and Pop Culture about how reading the Ms. Marvel comic helped him to deal with his kids with a new sense of reciprocal respect.
Our afternoon and early evening was an unrelenting mix of fighting, complaining, and whining. I felt suffocated, unable to think or process beyond the blind rage building up within. I was nearing rock bottom, that particularly low point beyond mere annoyance and exhaustion where you aren’t just upset with your kids — you begin to actively dislike them. I was nearing that point at a disturbingly fast clip. That is, until Ms. Marvel — and her mom — changed everything.
I never read the comics, but I’m looking forward to checking out the Ms. Marvel series on Disney+ as soon as we are through watching Obi-Wan Kenobi.
