I don't usually like to think on Saturdays

Abraham asked himself two pointed parenting questions recently and didn't like the answer he came up with. He challenged his readers -- of which I am one -- to ask ourselves the same two questions:

1. Would you want to be your child?
2. If not, how much of the reason why is you?

Yowza. I didn't plan to spend my Saturday feeling convicted, but it looks like my agenda is changing. Most of the time, my answer would probably be Yes to question 1. However, there are many moments every week when it would definitely be No. By a wide margin.

It's my hope and prayer, though, that all three of our boys feel loved and cared for, and that the tender moments far outweigh the sour ones. How would you answer the questions?
