Well daaaaaaa. Honestly, you would think people never had tv, games or school to raise their children.

Don't forget video games, Qlinger.

I don't know what parents did before video games... maybe women actually stayed home and raised them!!

In the effort to get away from television some parents engage in over-programming.

I'm contemplating sending a soon to be 4 year old into a season of spring soccer but even that is with a bit of reserve.

I figure, 1 hour of running around with other kids, chasing a ball, mixed in with 4 hours hanging with Dad running errands on a Saturday will just about be the right mix.

Besides, who has money to do more than 1 sport per year?

I think that's John Singer Sargent painting his kids...am I right?

I love his work.
