Folks, the prisons are filled to overflowing, and every single one of those millions of inmates had parents. Cats are born with more, and more superiour parenting skills than any human being will ever acquire. Any normal-brained human can learn parenting skills without having a child. Zookeepers acquire better parenting skills than those tending to human charges. Parenting is all about responsibility.
If you’re responsible enough to care for a tankful of fish without killing them you too can be a good parent… so don’t any of you parents start giving yourselves any parenting medals… self praise is no recommendation, especially when that praise is premature. Wait to see what kind of parents your kids turn out to be… I can guarantee that many will not be doing any parenting at all. I’ll leave yoose to consider the many reasons why not… hey, they could be in prison, but there are many more… Sheldon ` On a recent Night Court rerun, Judge Harry Stone had a wonderful line: “I try to keep an open mind, but not so open that my brains fall out.”
