XII Commandment Last but Not Least…. (End)

XII: Never forget that one of the the greatest joys you can experience is to become a fully engaged grandparent.

The second phase of  parenthood is to mitigate the inexperience of even the best well meaning parent your child may become.

Don’t drop the grandparent ball! If you do you’ll have missed the single best chance for contentment this life offers.

(Thus Endeth My Twelve Commandments)

    Dammit. You sure you don’t want to start a parenting q and a column?

    Too bad that Frank Shaefer is basing his ideas and convictions on his hatred for the way his supposedly abusive father brought him up instead of his own personal convictions. When convictions are based on hatred, nothing positive comes out of it.
