How To Make Parenting Difficult

Columnist Deb DiSandro writes about family issues, and often with humor. But some of her best columns are the straightforward ones, such as today's column about why parenting is hard. I don't think parenting has ever been easy, but she hits on several areas where today's parents are certainly guilty as charged: overindulging, over-identifying, over-explaining (one area I've had trouble with), overcompensating, over-thinking, over-controlling, over-involving and overprotecting.

I think most parents will find something of themselves in Ms. DiSandro's article....it's worth reading as a wake-up call if parenting is overwhelming you lately.
