and seriously re that article parents do
re: that article
Parents do struggle.
And when they do, they often need help, support, etc. and they should get these things when they need them.
but writing an article for a newspaper
is not doing those things
and pretty much the opposite of helpful or useful
and, no, not even useful for other parents
because nothing can be learned from your poor example of how to treat children like humans.
(and their experiences shouldn’t be offered as educational fodder for strangers)
