Feeling bad about your parenting skills? Take a tip from Julie M. Smith in Austin and self-righteously attack other parents with things you don't do and you will feel better about yourself immediately. Never mind that you pawn your own kids off on others and then neglect them when they have play dates at your house, instead lash out at other mothers who take their kids to ballet, soccer and preschool then weakly apologize for their misunderstanding you and stomp off in a huff while insulting the person you just offended.
So, um, Julie, if you are against Preschool and outside activities and you are busy doing housework and "writing books" (self-published ponderous lists of unanswered questions) and you keep your kids out of your hair with chores and video games, then who is teaching your little ones the alphabet, numbers and good social skills? In other words, the stuff they would learn in preschool, if you sent them there, but don't because you would rather spend the money on "food storage or college funds or...consumer debt"...or new GameBoy games to keep the kids motivated to do chores (or is that the "consumer debt" you were referring to?).
