I don't think a day goes by when Trish and I don't express doubt about our parenting decisions: are we reading to her enough? are schedules stifling her creativity? are we the reason she has the attention span of a gnat? Montessori or Public? will a sippy or open cup have profound implications on her development? Unix/Linux, Mac or Windows? will excessive amounts of pink clothing turn her into a girly girl? will our fear of bugs prevent her from a career as an entomologist? will giving in to an occasional trip to Wendy's cause her to be a junk-food addict?
Hegemo to the rescue with this piece. Check out the slide show. I haven't been able to view the video because of my current set up (that's probably a good thing).
I feel much better.
