Raising the Bar
Adam Gopnik muses on the art of parenting and the challenges of getting it right.
"Too much praise... or too little?", he wonders. "You have to be hands off, smiling" but at the same time "engaged, unsparing in honesty".
He concludes that raising children is an art, not a science or a craft. "They are the artists of their own lives but we can, we must, teach them the art of living".

a nail on a head
Return of a 1970's sexual zeitgeist. The ludicrous and rigidly feigned morality of the
conservatives today could unscrew their faces once and get a clue. Everyone does
what they want without regard to national political agendas.
