On Going Home

Letting children "live their lives" isn't about releasing them into the wild or abandoning them. It's about acknowledging that children aren't repositories for their parents' ambitions or projects for their parents to perfect. They are separate and capable, with their own tastes, pleasures, and experiences of the world.While giving kids independence isn't a novel idea, I don't often see it implemented by American parents. I recently met a couple who hasn't spent more than a few minutes away from their child in the 2 years since the little one was born. That doesn't seem healthy for the child nor the parents.
Author: I’ve done a lot of coding, and I’m proud of it. I really want to merge, but I need to ask someone to check my work.This is spot on. I had no idea I had a negative code review mindset. Something to think about this week.
Reviewer: I’m busy with my own code, but now I’ve got yet another task to do.
Author: This may take a long time…
Reviewer: Someone is touching my code, and I’d better make sure they don’t mess it up.
Author: hmm… I don’t think the reviewer even understands what I’m trying to do.
