As I show in this week’s Dustinland comic, kids sure have a great way of cutting you down. It’s usually comedic, but still, it can hurt. In this case, it was just a funny zinger. But if you search the Internets or simply talk to any parent, you’ll hear stories of brutal honesty that can really cut to the bone. The best I heard was this dad who posted on Reddit how his kid said something like “I think you’re not the number one dad, because you’re a good dad but there are probably better.” And that was on his birthday!
