I have a book in my possession, entitled "Becoming the Parent you Want to Be".
I looked at that book tonight, glass of wine in hand, and wondered to myself...
Is there a chapter in that book that tells you how to be the parent lying on a beach somewhere being tended by cabana boys whilst sipping something fruity, while your precious little darlings are elsewhere, being cared for by someone who currently likes them better than you do?
No? Then that stupid book CLEARLY does not know the parent I want to be right now.
