When I was in my twenties, all I wanted to do was be a trial lawyer. I spent my days and nights, thinking of ways to better my craft, my trade … what I considered my art form. I studied it and thought about it. I read about it. It consumed me. All that hard work paid off and I became one of the more recognized and accomplished trial lawyers around.
Fast forward several years to now and while I am still a trial lawyer and it still consumes me, I am a parent of three children: two of whom are teenagers. Where are the books, guides, journals and other materials that I can study to help me perfect this trade? I am laughing out loud as I type this for I know the answer. There are no guides and this craft, parenting, cannot be perfected. I hope that I am doing a good job.
