Trawl around Facebook for any given length of time and you’ll undoubtedly see a lot of inspirational images with words emblazoned across a magnificent background, denoting how you should live, love, or leave those around you. You also see ecards about wine and aging, but that’s beside the point.
A lot of times you see quotes about parenting. You see pictures of parents doing it right, and you see a lot of pictures of parents doing it wrong or worse yet, missing children.
