My sister-in-law posted this preview for a CBC documentary about “helicopter parents.” I plan on setting my dvr. While I don’t consider myself a “curling parent” (watch the video) I think it’s an interesting, if somewhat scary phenomenon. I spend a lot of time on parenting message boards and it’s one thing I don’t completely understand, although it’s funny how you start to feel pressure to “keep up”.
Emma will be nine this weekend. There’s a big part of me who feels like I’m not “doing enough” for her birthday, but the silly thing is that she’s happy. She’s even okay with one of mom’s very “undesigner” cakes!
