    Thanks. She has her moments.

    Could be. But I think the essence of parenting is raising children to be independent adults capable of thriving on their own. She may not get a huge inheritance, but she'll know a hawk from a handsaw if I have anything to say about it.

    I just hope most of the campus snowflakery will have subsided by the time she goes to college.

    I agree Ldahl and that is the way we raised our kids. I teach a college course and i noticed the uptick in students wanting special favors not for important traumatic events but things like they fell asleep so didn't take the quiz they had a week to take. Ugh! No!

    I was a bit shocked, but evidently was the only one. I was trying to figure out how the subject of letting children be friends with porn industry people was coming up.
