Don't Gossip About Your Kids
However, one of the core messages I wanted to get across in said article was:
Don't Gossip About Your Kids.
I'm not suggesting you parent in isolation. I'm saying: recognize when you're stepping on your child's privacy. Be aware which details you're sharing with whom, especially as they approach adolescence. Give them the respect you expect them to exercise where your personal life is concerned.
I'm gently cautioning, Don't gossip about your kids.
