Parenting Insight # 324

I was not the easiest teenager to live with. More than once, I've wondered why my parents still talk to me, let alone give every impression of enjoying my company. I think I figured it out, though, now that I'm a parent.

Once you've watched someone struggle with learning that you can't have their thumb and their pacifier in their mouth at the same time, and rooted for them to finally figure it out, I'd imagine it's pretty easy to forgive them for taking a long time to learn the harder things, like being graceful in admitting fault, and basic politeness to those closest to you.
