Parenting seems to be like a game of musical chairs; you think things are going smoothly before you are suddenly left standing alone. Thoughts go round and round searching for a place to settle. Is calling my daughter beautiful giving her confidence or a sense that she is only worth her good looks? Is a cupcake a fun treat or gateway drug to a sugar addiction? When people stop to offer their unsolicited advice, are they speaking from their own past mistakes, or finding an opportunity to be relieved that their sitting this round out?
