Raoul's 2 Cents: Oh, the demands we put on our children. I'm not talking about my family but families in general. We are all guilty of this. (Well, "guilty" may be too strong a word but you know what I mean.) And it's not only normal but it's good that we want the best for our kids. But It's like we get into this self-inflicted competition of the human race that started with the first family.
