If you take these things at face-value: -eat fast food regularly (practically daily) -don't exercise -never read to child -don't unplug from technology (on iPad for probably > 4 hours daily) -don't provide activities: join no sports teams, club (boy/girl scouts), or community group of any kind If you take these things as truths, does that make you a bad parent? Like, if you did all these things for your child (i.e. to your child) but were kind to them, does that negate all the harm you potentially cause them? Edit: BTW, I'm not judging anyone here. I certainly do all of these things "in moderation" myself. Some maybe more, some much less. When I list these things, I'm doing so from personal observation.
