You've got about eight or nine years before they realize what a sham you are. With my seven year old I've got maybe five, so am trying to enjoy it while it lasts.

so I should enjoy their adoring me while it lasts. Good point. What a fool I'd be if I thought they would adore me forever. My wife says that's a good thing. Kids grow up and become more critical. We want them to be skeptics and see through their father's charade.

My family went out of town for the weekend and I was a bit turned around at one point, pulling into a drive and then backing out again, etc. My seven year old said, "Daddy, what's wrong with you?" It was almost as if it was the first time she saw me as a fallible being in terms of my ability to get things done. Little does she know.

As Erich Fromm writes, a child must outgrow delusions of parental omnipotence.

It is amazing how long it took me to grow out of my own delusions of omnipotence. It must take forever for a kid to do it!

Insanity is hereditary.
You get it from your kids.
