I don’t get Danielle Wilson. One week she “insists” that her children play a sport, the next week complains because she’s exhausted from running them around when her husband is on a business trip. Looks like she has created her own problem. But, I think her problem is much greater, one that she’s exposed the entire north side community to for a while. She seems to enjoy dumping her problems out in her column, why not dump them out to a psychologist or pastor? I think her greatest need is “Peace In” – that is, inner peace, and it likely won’t be solved by ranting about her screaming kids, slow drivers on the road, or her husband who “doesn’t get it.” Her children and husband are the greatest gifts of her life, but she’s too exhausted, overworked and road-raged to notice. She’s not doing her kids or marriage any favors by her negative attitude and complaints. The greatest lesson of parenting is “modeling” and I think she will have, as she called it, “a grim future with teens”, if she continues on this out of control path. And, so, Danielle, do us all a favor and take a break from writing, find a better balance, and focus on your family. And, if you don’t mind, please give us a heads up when your 11-year old starts driving in the dented mini-van so we can all clear the roads! And may “Peace In” be with you.
