I was feeling a little guilty in that last post about admitting that I take the kids to the park and make them fend for themselves. I DON'T play with them but instead spend time reading or playing on my phone. I actually wondered if I should admit this in such a public forum but chose to because I wanted to keep it real. (And I hate censoring myself!)
Then I read this post which makes me feel so much better about myself. I wonder what others think - are my actions helpful to my child or am I just looking for excuses to validate my behavior?
