The last couple of lines in Can You Ever Be A Perfect Parent? ( Jun 10) really got me thinking. Is it true that we have romanticised the idea of being a parent when we do not share our challenges andonly talk of the ‘ wonderful moments’? Nothing prepares us for responsibility like being a parent does. You recognise a new vulnerability in you soon after that warm, living bundle is placed into your hands. What you’re unprepared for and rarely talk about is the darker side of your personality that emerges even as you combat your fears, expectations, and disappointments — all while being so in love with them. To answer the question the title asks is easy — it’s ‘ no’. What happened to Harambe is really sad. But being an armchair critic is easy. There will be days when we all make mistakes. What’s important is to learn from them and better our tomorrows.
