With you until that very last, incredibly conceited sentence there Grim. :P
Conceited? Why? Because my own observations tell me these things? We all know most people are good people, and most kids are good kids, and most everybody tries their hardest to do the right thing. Still, I see my sons friends, and his classmates, and his fellow daycare inmates, and I wonder. So many parents SEEM to let their kids get away with so much. Why are 10 year olds staying up as late as they want to without a set bedtime? Why are 10 year olds being allowed to sleep until noon? Why are these kids tromping through other peoples property and destroying their things, with no remorse whatsoever? I could go on and on.
I am in no way suggesting that I am a perfect parent. I AM suggesting that I'm pretty darn good at it, though. I never thought I would be, but even my wife agrees that kinda rock at this Dad thing.
Guys, no one is saying that we all can't offer our opinions on things. Just know that if I ever need parenting advice, I'm not asking a bunch of young rpgfans without kids. Just like no is asking me about how to play hockey or make schnitzel.
