“Here’s my unpopular take:
You don’t know how your kids have actually turned out until they’re thirty.
And even then you probably don’t know for sure.
See, for me, I’ve watched too many parents of toddlers going, “Look! They’re well-behaved! That’s proof that my parenting techniques are wonderful!” And then these kids go to school and become screaming monsters, and it turns out that all this goodness was just a phase they were going through.”
