I don’t care what people think of my parenting.
Let me clarify: I don’t care what people who aren’t in my family think of my parenting.
I appreciate everyone who reads my stuff, even the humorless prigs who think I’m the Worst Father On Earth because I make jokes online, but I am well aware that none of you see the full picture of my parenting. Your judgment, positive and negative, is both incomplete and invalid. You see what I want you to see.
That said, there’s one reaction I can’t stomach. And it’s not the one you think.
