After writing a piece entitled “Why I’m Raising My Son To Be A Nerd” LZ Granderson received tons of good and bad feedback, here what he’s replying about his parenting habits. He don’t need no stinking world class athlete! Here’s snippet of his piece:
You know the kind of dad who registers his son for soccer almost as soon as he takes his first step? That was me. You know that dad who yells so much on the sideline that he leaves the game a little hoarse? Yeah, that was me too. You know the dad who cheers when his kid brings home an A? No? Well me neither … until I became that dad a few years ago.
