About Karyn @ kloppenmum

kloppenmum is me, Karyn Van Der Zwet, mother of three and ex-teacher. I'm part of a revolution in parenting, with the aim to raise mature (not sophisticated) and self-assured children. I also know some stuff about adults. I have also had articles printed in The Journal for The British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (Children and Young People) and the US parenting magazine, Pathways to Family Wellness, as well I regularly write for World Moms Blog (named as one of the Forbes 100 most useful blogs for women 2012 &2013). You can follow me on facebook (kloppenmum) pinterest (Karyn at Kloppenmum) and twitter (@kloppenmum). I'm also vaguely on LinkedIn (Karyn Van Der Zwet). Thanks to Joe (Mr Hare) for taking the photo. Cheers, son: xxxx.

    Such a lovely article. They have a lot of interesting stuff there. Thanks.

  3. You give people far more credit for their honesty than they deserve! I can tell you why that fellow responded as he did: He’s Mormon. And most Mormons would respond with honesty and return what is not theirs.

  4. It’s important to note the cultural and religious influences that dictate a person’s actions. It is misguided to appropriate morality and right action to most people based on the actions of one person who is in a distinct religious and moral minority.

    • I just like to have faith in people. Regardless of faith. Or no-faith, so to speak. 🙂

      • Wanted to add that even if the man is without Mormon affiliation or affinity, it is still an unfounded and unreasonable leap to attribute honesty and morality to most people based on the actions of one honest man. Giving credit where credit is due – to the man – and not to the whole of mankind seems appropriate.

    That is amazing. We need to hear more stories like that. Even though it must have been really, really, really hard to hand back that money.
