There is nothing more pleasing or motivating to a teacher than a Jean Day.

I’m serious.

As a former educator, I can now tell you the absolutely worst part of my job was dressing up…professionally. Even typing the word gives me the chills as I relive every collared shirt, khaki or dress pants and uncomfortable pair of shoes.

As a father to a incredible little girl, I have to face the harsh reality of her meeting and connecting with a young man at some point in her life and then having to meet this new love of hers before giving her away in marriage.

(I am literally entering a depression just having written the intro.)

My hope is this day is still about 25 years away. Plenty of time for the rage, sadness and denial to all melt into some weird form of acceptance.

But every once and awhile, there comes a time when really, really tough decisions have to be made and if not done correctly (and covertly), your child and every non-parent out there will look on you with condemnation and judgment until you suffocate under the weight of your error.

So, in an effort to assist all you parents out there, I have written this edition of 5 Non-Points (Revelations that Probably Won’t Change Your Life at All) and addressed the best way to Throw Out Your Child’s Artwork.
