Here is the word-picture to go with the picture-picture. My daughter is the blonde darling carrying her own bag which is almost bigger than she is. The lady walking in front of her is carrying 2 bags over her shoulders while her children ride on ahead. These said children are both significantly older than my 5 year old daughter (who only got her first bike this Christmas and only started preschool in the last week of January) yet mother carries their bags. I can’t even express in words what this picture says to me.
My questions to you dear readers…
Which parent is going to be stuck constantly pandering to the whims of their spoilt offspring?
Which child is going to grow up strong and independent?
