Good Parenting

And more.

Still, with this latest episode in the lives of the Spears family, one can't help wondering who was the genius who contracted the sisters' mother, Lynne, to write a book on parenting. The project reportedly has been put on hold. But given the problems her daughters have had, it's hard to believe the book was ever in the works.

Now one can mock the mother for writing a parenting book if her schtick was defining good parenting for girls as making sure they kept their legs closed long enough. But this is exactly what the Inquirer is buying into. Her daughter got pregnant, so Lynne is a bad parent, and therefore it's absurd that she'd write a book about good parenting.
