I ran aross this column in Newsweek from a really involved who was struck that her daughter chose "dad" as role model on a school assignment. Not "mom & dad", just dad.

I realize that's not the warmest, fuzziest topic for Mother's Day week, but the column does provide a unique perspective for all of us really involved school parents.  Can we be too involved?  Is it OK if our kids don't value all the involvement now?  Will they value it later? 

Give it a read and post your thoughts.  I'll jump back in with some more thoughts on this one (especially on the fairly heated debate in the comments section) soon....
