I think this article has an interesting take and is hard to argue against. There are really no wrong perspectives but I will say this much: when your kid has been first his or her whole life, has no respect for authority because they were raised to be a god and ends up unemployed, living with you into their 30s and you get a call from central booking they just got out of the ER because they bought a face full of pepper spray, the rest of the world probably wasnt the asshole here. YOU are no good to anyone unless you're squared away. "I put my kids first" is a nice bumper sticker, but first and foremost you dont eat, you dont make it to work to provide. YOU are first. So, go on and discuss.
