New article online: Don’t be good

Ted Harrison, a pastor from Ontario, writes a letter to his goddaughter in which he briefly describes what he would like from her as her godfather.

“I don’t want you to be good because good is a loaded word. For kids, it usually means obedient. Or compliant, or dutiful. Or just plain old does-as-she’s-told. And maybe a lot of parents bring their kids up to be like that because they had to be like that – so for them that’s just the way it is.”
