Have you ever come up with a good parenting strategy only to have it fail miserably when you tried to implement it?
Imagine that you’re in the middle of a job interview, and the interviewer asks you whether you think it’s important for women to wear bras to work. What would you do? Tell the interviewer that the question is inappropriate? Refuse to answer it? Would you feel angry that someone would ask you this question?
Maybe you know the feeling. You plan to eat healthy, but by the end of the day you find yourself hiding in the pantry sneaking your kids’ leftover Halloween candy. Or you sit down on the couch and tell yourself you’re only going to watch one episode of Parenthood, but by the time you’ve almost convinced yourself that it’s 1:00 in the morning and you really should go to bed, Netflix has already started the next episode.
