Please Stop Telling Me I Should Do Things For A Living

The title, alone, sounds ridiculous. Please stop telling me I should do things for a living? What do I expect - to sit around and do nothing as a grown ass adult? No. That's not what I mean at all.

Stop Hooking Up Your Children Before They Are Old Enough To Date

I'm likely going to lose some friends over this, and if so that's unfortunate. The great thing about friendships is the ability to agree to disagree. So let's hope we can do that.
