Parenting doesn’t come with a handbook. It’s all on-the-job training. But the same is true for kids trying to grow into adults. No guidelines, just lots of unwritten rules that restrict who our children think they want to be. Ultimately, both parties want the same outcome: the kids’ independence. Parents just tend to want to attach a couple of modifiers to that: responsible, successful independence.
Mothers and fathers with clearly poor parenting skills are pretty common these days.
