Parenting

“There may be some doubt as to who are the best people to have children, but there can be no doubt that parents are the worst.” -Anonymous

I don’t have kids. I don’t want kids. I don’t spend a lot of time around kids. That being said, I have very strong opinions about them. Mostly, I don’t like them. Now, I’m not one to comment on anyone’s parenting abilities. From my limited experience, having kids is tough.

I spent the weekend with a family that has kids. Really, really great kids actually. The kids have really, really great parents.

The parents are atheists. (Well, an atheist and an agnostic.) After seeing a picture in a magazine about a manger scene, one of the kids mentioned she wanted one. Her (religious) grandmother explained that it was really important because that was the son of God, etc. Later, her parents took her aside and explained that not everyone believes in God, that they don’t don’t believe in God, but that Nana does.

Could you imagine the Duggars telling their kids that?
