Just About the Dress

If, as a parent, you never overcompensated for screwed-up things from your childhood, you should stop reading now. No, I mean it. You’ll think less of me, and you’ll feel sad for my kids. If, on the other hand, you give your kids soda and Dunkin Donuts for breakfast because they were off-limits for you, then feel free to enjoy my guilt-free confession:I didn’t let my daughters watch Disney movies.
