"I love my kids, but..."
Good parenting means accepting your kids as they are. If their interests involve driving across the country to take part in a softball tournament, you do it. If they need to stay up late preparing for a spelling bee, you do it. If they failed to notify you of a science project until 8pm the night before it's due, you help them complete it, then you ground them. See, that's the thing. You do it, but you don't have to like the kids.
