I felt like the spirit of the linked anecdote captured our goals with the site pretty well. We're about helping parents be good school parents -- how to do that, why to do that, community among other parents taking on the same challenge. We're not about being super-parents or raising the most amazing -- get them their college scholarship before they're 12 -- kids ever. Just about trying to do things right, while maintaining some sanity and balance. And having some fun. I do believe that saying "No" at the right times and with consistency is part of that mix.
Off my soapbox now. Funny -- I'm off to one of the toughest nights of the year to say NO -- Halloween. Boo!
