I’m traveling today on a multi leg trip. It amazes me(really it doesn’t, but I like to say it does) of the families traveling with children. Mom and dad are on their cell phones, and the kids are mentally locked into some tablet game. I don’t remember our early life like that with our daughter. 

Now on the opposite spin, there is a couple traveling with their small son sitting across from me. He and Mom are practicing the addition and multiplication tables. They are all engaged. It gives me hope! 

I understand that children can be difficult, but if you don’t have the dedication and mentality to give them wholesome attention and support, raise chickens instead! You can eat them when your finished, instead of releasing a high strung lunatic into the world.
