For the bleary-eyed parents

UPDATE (23/6): Slate asks:

Are our enlightened, engaged, sensitive parenting practices driving a certain segment of the population insane? Is the nice, liberal father who has just this Saturday carted his kids to soccer practice, play dates, piano lessons, made sunflower-butter sandwiches, and read Goodnight Moon three times seething with quiet desperation? The surprise ascendance of Adam Mansbach and Ricardo Cortés’ Go the F**k to Sleep on all sorts of best-seller lists eloquently answers that question.

    That was just too beautiful. Wouldn’t it be illegal in Victoria though? Maybe you should expect a knock on the door soon or something…

  3. Jackson is great, but he ain’t a patch on the brilliant Tim Minchin when it comes to parental angst.
