Super Mom as Role Model?

Recently ran across this column from Newsweek about a very involved mom wondering why her own daughter listed "dad" as role model on a school assignment.

The column itself -- especially the fairly heated stay-at-home vs. working mom debate in the comments section -- isn't exactly warm, fuzzy Mother's Day stuff, but it is thought-provoking. Is getting involved worth it? (I say yes.) Will the kids recognize its worth? (Maybe, but not likely while they're still kids.) Is there a proper balance between not involved and too involved? (Definitely, as there is in all things.)

Anyway, it's a good read. Love to hear your thoughts on it.
