...or a licensing exam or something for parents. Our neighbor across the street is a young-20-something year old guy with a 3 or 4 year old son by his ex-girlfriend. The mother brings the little kid over on the weekends and the parents inevitably get into a huge screaming match in front of the kid. Last weekend, the girl was so pissed off, she purposely backed her car into the guy's new truck...which led to a police report and on and on. (The kid wasn't with her that time.) I feel so sorry for the little boy. And I wonder what kind of imprinting all this tension is doing on him. What kind of ideas will he grow up with about how adults are supposed to treat each other. Sad, sad, sad.
