A primary school teacher friend shared this on Facebook and I thought some might find it interesting.

Mum to 3 adult children in their 20's and Nana to an adorable 2 year old granddaughter. Also Mum to a nutty Golden Retriever and 2 lovely but independent felines.

Life is often a daily struggle but thanks to friends and the Sams I muddle through.

Yes, interesting and good, but it takes time, which many people are short of.

I think that's what the writer means when he says 'tragedy'

That's very interesting, and along the lines of a book I'm reading, which is very challenging, saying that kids basically need less stuff, less busyness, less choices and less adult information (e.g. tv news), to be secure and happy. Simplicity Parenting is what it is called.
