I wanted to write how truly amazing I found this essay here; how readable it is; how sharp; how full of wisdom. Instead I will tell you: I truly think, that every ongoing parent should read it. It should be a handout to anyone who just THINKS of someday being a parent, or for anybody who has anything to do with children. So simply said: EVERYONE should read it.
