Awesome article by Linda Dobson

The Road Less Traveled - Linda Dobson

I Can Read This, So I Thank My Mother

Today I waited at a red light behind a car with a bumper sticker proclaiming the owner's child was a local school's student of the month. Yesterday, I was behind another vehicle whose owner's child is an honor student. The day before, yet another bumper sticker told me that if I could read it, I should thank a teacher.

After all these years, such stickers still irritate me. Many years ago, they bothered me so badly that, being the good homeschooling advocate that I am, I decided to fight back. I created my own bumper sticker. I gave them away at homeschooling conferences, and with book purchases. (And all of the homeschoolers within my local support group, I now believe, in retrospect, were afraid not to put theirs on their cars.)

I really enjoyed this article. I agree that narcissism is becoming a real problem in society. Sometimes I'm just blown away by the selfishness of people. I'll be forwarding this article to some friends and family members. Thanks for sharing it!
