Sometimes, as is normal (I think) I wonder if I am doing a good job with my kids. Am I doing the right thing? Am I balancing discipline with softness? Am I making it clear how much I love them? Am I giving them everything they need, without getting too close to spoiling them? Am I doing everything I can to prevent them from coming to harm, while allowing them to grow and develop for themselves? Am I a good father?
And then I read about this guy.
The Jerusalem District Court convicted Yisrael Wallis of manslaughter on Wednesday nearly two years after he shook his son, Yitzhak, to death. Wallis’s son was three months old when he was killed.
And then I realize that there are some people that far more unfit for being a parent than I am. Good lord. This guy shouldn’t be allowed to live, let alone continue to procreate.
