The Parenting Manifesto Meme Lives On

A little more than a year ago, I launched what is probably my favorite rebeldad.com project: I encouraged readers here and at On Balance to send along how-to parenting guides of 500 words or less, and I gathered the responses I received on my manifesto page (which still makes for great reading if you haven't visited).

Well, Reuters jumped on the bandwagon, enthusiastically if belatedly, running this piece by Christopher Noxon. Like all of the manifestos, there's wisdom to be mined:
Never underestimate the importance of blood sugar. Obstinacy, unruliness or brattiness are often rooted less in deep disfunction or your in-law's bad genetic heritage than the time elapsed since the last pretzel. Snack often.
I'm always happy to update the list of manifestos, so feel free to try your hand.
