OverParenting is 5 years old today!

I was asked this morning when this blog was started. To my surprise, my first post was written exactly 5 years ago on Feb 22, 2005. Reflecting on these years, I am thankful for feedback from many of you and especially grateful for people acknowledging value and information provided here.

Over the years, I met many great parents and I have utmost respect for them. It turns out this whole parenting thing is a journey of discovering what is important in life. My younger son turned 17 yesterday. The other day, I asked him what his definition of success is. He told me that success means you made a difference. I thought his answer was very inspiring. I suddenly have the confidence that he will be alright and I am very proud of who he becomes.
