Interesting that no one has commented on this article yet. School issues, which more often than not involve parents and home life, generate a lot of heated discussion in PA.

It’s a shame that this is not being offered without fees, so that anyone could take a peak and see what the Stanford experts on families, and life (in general) have to say on the matter.

Wonder how these folks will get around to saying:

1) Slow Down
2) Recognize that someday your working days will be over, but your family will be all that you have—if you didn’t wreck it when you were younger.
3) Kids can not manage on their own—they need parents.

Would be interesting to count the number of words they take to get around to conveying this simple message.


Don't miss out on the discussion!
