Perfect Parenting

"Someone I know tells me that in the mornings, while making breakfast, packing lunches and laying out clothes, she organises an art project for her children. An art project! This sounds impossibly idyllic – imaginative, engaged, laudable. And yet, is it just the slightest bit mad as well?" - Katie Roiphe in Slate

in all that planning, she's missed spending some time having breakfast WITH her children. And she's going to wind up with children who see her as a servant and who don't know how to be bored... It's a great article - and a lesson many parents and families would benefit from learning!
