Truthful Tuesday

Before you post yet another thing on Facebook about how your kid is kicking ass in school (or sports or dance or violin or the stock market), please think for a few milliseconds about the kids who aren’t, and their parents.

Then go ahead and post it anyway; it’s your kid and your Facebook and you should celebrate accomplishment as you see fit. I’m just asking you to think first.

  6. frageelay said: I always do. But I also think of not dimming my light so others can shine, and when my kids struggle and then achieve, that should be celebrated. I am okay with being their champion. And I’m sensitive to other families’ needs.
