Two of my kids have birthdays in March, which is a reminder that birthdays are another of those things that I find difficult as a parent.
Keep a long memory for the good moments and keep a short memory for the bad ones.
We often take it for granted as parents that our kids know why we correct and discipline them.
Children take up a tremendous amount of time, energy, money, and just about everything else that we could otherwise spend on things that we enjoy more.
I'm often at odds with my middle son's teacher over the school he misses.
Is it really the case that we want our children associating the expression of love with the mere distribution of mass produced tokens of emotions that they don't really feel?
