In writing my original reply on my cell phone, I forgot to address this question. No, I'm not a parent. But simply being a parent does not make one a good source of parenting advice either. If one does not learn from their experience, experience does not become wisdom. Try driving in Houston sometime, and you'll see my point. People with decades of driving experience changing lanes at the very last second to make a turn, driving well over 20 miles per hour over the speed limit, driving mere inches from the car in front of them, showing absolutely no concern for the safety of themselves or anyone else. They're just as dangerous on the road, if not moreso, than new drivers.

Being a parent alone doesn't qualify someone to give parenting advice since clearly some parents have no business being parents. Getting married or parenting a child is (or should be) a life altering experience  and very few people's preconceptions (including my own) are accurate.
Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one.

Modesty and my own failures prevent me ... but I haven't been asleep the last 30 years either.

Ah, conversion through stealth...
Any education has to be by stealth. I've mailed books to adult cousins who are "in the closet" on the whole reality thing and they relay to the kids.
We 'new atheists' have a reputation for being militant, but make no mistake  we didn't start this war. If you want to place blame put it on the the religious zealots who have been poisoning the minds of the  young for a long long time."
