Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
So you are saying my eldest son has retro-actively genetically engineered me for leadership? He would like that. Mind you it took considerable skills of leadership to get him to do anything in his early teens... but I maintain those skills were acquired through bitter experience.

If you have to have a driving licence to drive a car, how much more important is it to have a parenting licence to become a parent? The skills required are several orders of magnitude greater, and the consequences for getting it wrong so much more serious.

Mind you it is hard for me not to take a little vicarious pleasure as he struggles with parenthood. I find the duties of grandparenthood a breeze by comparison. I think some kids are genetically predisposed to force their parents to develop great leadership skills, and he is coming along nicely...
