I find it incredibly reassuring that there are a whole stack of Moms and Dads out there who are trying hard to teach our children all the thing they need for adult life. Rather than giving them extended childishness, we’re trying to give them extended childhood (innocence and time to develop) coupled with increasing skill and responsibility. I love my minions… erm, children.
