When is it legal for them to mix me a drink?

January 5th, 2010 Posted in Fatherhood, The Art of Parenting

I suppose it’s helpful to hear some expert advice on when my children can have sleepovers and get their own mobile phones, but there’s some other milestones I have in mind, like the age when they can operate a chainsaw, when I can send them down to the basement to catch an intruding snake, and when it’s legal to send them out to start my truck for me when it’s cold. That’s the stuff, unfortunately, that you never get from the experts.
