Enemy of Parenting

Internet is a great enemy of parenting. Parents drive themselves to insanity fretting that something is horribly wrong with their kid because somebody online mentioned some utterly imaginary milestone that all kids supposedly need to hit by a certain age.

I stopped googling when Klara was 8 months old and had a viral rash. I made myself physically ill by researching her symptoms and dredging horrific diseases out of the depths of Google. I spent the whole night weeping, and the kid woke up completely healthy and chirpy.
