The binary payoffs in parenting & consumption

It is easier for me think my attempts at better parenting is about ensuring my kids don't suffer my shortcomings. Sure that's true, but it's only half the story. The other half is about me. Doing it right is so I don't fall short when I self-judge (my parenting).

The same plays out in the consumption arena too. Buying stuff for my kids is so they can be happy. Plus it warms me up too. The payoffs cut both ways.
