15 years ago, Caroline and I thought we knew everything about parenting.
We were newly married and, oh yes, we were parenting experts.
We had read all the books, listened to all the tape sets and marked out in other families how "NOT" to parent.
We were dead serious about this parenting business and we were ready to show the world what raising children is supposed to look like.
Except we didn't have any children.
Which meant we had almost zero experience.
Which meant we didn't have a clue.
Our first child came and we were convinced he couldn't have landed in a better home.
After all, we were experts.
We knew exactly how to mold him into an obedient, God-fearing young man.
The truth? We had more to learn than he did.
