My father used to like to say, too often, "There are two kinds of parents in this world – those who have trouble with their kids, and those who are going to." Dad's joke was not funny. But it can comfort parents going through family problems to know they are not alone, while reminding others to be grateful for their successful adults. A parent's job is never done. –Fletcher Farrar, editor and CEO
