Your opinion on your kid is of no import. It matters to nobody. Your kid’s opinion of you is everything that matters.
If you prepare your kids to do well in the world, they’ll live in an ugly world. You have to prepare your everyone’s kids to make a better world.
Kids are smart people who lack experience. They’re not simple-minded. If they ask you a question, answer it properly. If it’s complicated, describe the nuances of it. If they ask why, make sure to answer the correct question. Don’t invent myths as barriers to understanding. Do provide myths, as myths.
