Without any intent to denigrate Richard Eyre, I pose the following question: What is it that makes one a parenting expert? Is there a test that we subject someone's children to that measures the outcome of that person's parenting? If a person has four or more children that are above the age of thirty and that score higher than 500 on the test then they are officially an expert? It would seem that some really poor parents might get to be experts by virtue of their children being exceptional despite their parents. Conversely, someone else might only have been blessed with two or three children that also happened to not turn out so well despite world-record, good parenting.
What works well with one child can fail miserably with another. I guess I just don't buy into the concept of a person being an expert about somethings and parenting is one of them.
