A parent’s guide to the rigors of childrearing: Raising Me

Marie Holmes writes in the Washington Post (Jan. 4, 2019) “Modern parenting, often accomplished while working full-time, and without help from extended family, is maddening enough without the added pressure of being constantly told that if only you were more efficient, you could have a clean shirt and your kids could have Instagram-worthy bento boxes for lunch.”

Paul Ruben Currently reading,Living An Examined Life (James Hollis, PhD/Sounds True Books). Many of the themes address core issues that connect or father and son or turns them into intimate enemies, including the author's assertion that we have the capacity for choice and the agency to affect choice. In terms of father and son, yes, those into whose lives we are born, never die. Equally trues, as Hollis says, "Our life begins twice: the day we are born and the day we accept the radical existential fact that our life, for all its delimiting factors, is essentially ours to choose." As a father, I recognize this notion and feel obligated to own 'choice,' to believe that I have the capacity to be and become the kind of father and human being I desire, especially as I evaluate my relationship with my adult son.
