The Internet has all but extinguished any hope parents ever had

Perfect parenting has never existed; but before the wilds of social media, we didn’t hear about the traumatic accidents and close calls as much. We weren’t asked to weigh in and participate in discussions where children had been hurt, lost or stolen. Now we are. And our advice is too often heavy-handed, full of judgment and impossible to follow.

The Internet makes it really easy to be a critic—not only in emergency situations, but in the daily grind of parenting.
