Um link para o fim de semana

Todos os fins de semana, o Bebé Filósofo sugere algo para fazer, ler, ouvir, contemplar ou pensar.
Para concordar ou discordar.

"Idle parenting means happy children"
(algo como "Parentalidade ociosa para crianças felizes"),
um artigo de 2008, irónico e controverso, escrito por Tom Hudgkinson para o Daily Telegraph:

Um excerto:

Manifesto of the idle parent

We reject the idea that parenting requires hard work
We pledge to leave our children alone
That should mean that they leave us alone, too
We reject the rampant consumerism that invades children from the moment they are born
We read them poetry and fantastic stories without morals
We drink alcohol without guilt
We reject the inner Puritan
We fill the house with music and laughter
We don't waste money on family days out and holidays
We lie in bed for as long as possible
We try not to interfere
We push them into the garden and shut the door so that we can clean the house
We both work as little as possible, particularly when the kids are small
Time is more important than money
Happy mess is better than miserable tidiness
Down with school
We fill the house with music and merriment
