Neal Pollack, who is strangely hurting for money given his relative success, had his kid in a daycare program. Recently, the kid was "fired" because he was running around biting the other kids.
He was drawing blood, y'all.
Yet all Neal Pollack seems concerned about is the effect having the kid home will have on his work.
Now, I'll repeat that I wouldn't know good parenting if it came up and bit me on the ass, but this doesn't sound like it. What particularly creeped me out is that the story relates that the biting focused on one little girl, Sophie. (What is it about the name "Sophie" that evokes a skinny, delicate, large-eyed Eastern European girl? Absolutely not a person one could stand to see bitten.)
That he whines a lot is no shocker. I'm no stranger to inadvertantly displaying unattractive qualities on the internet.
But his complete and total disregard for the other kids, and the position his kid put the daycare workers in with the other kids' parents, is really disturbing.
One sentance of real concern. It would have taken seconds to type and would have changed my opinion of Pollack and his article immensely.
It wasn't there.
