Random quote of the day:

“Parenting is a serious responsibility. It is the hardest job in the world to do, yet it’s the easiest job to get—no education, no training, no experience with kids (of any age), no test, no interviews, no probation period, no periodic evaluations and hardly any risk of being fired.”

—Jerry Steinberg, “License to Parent,” Founder of No Kidding!
