I follow a group of dad bloggers on Twitter. We all get together and talk about what it means to be a 'Modern Daddy'. Don't get me wrong, I love my dad, but he had it SO easy! He came from the era of "Men don't do housework." Lucky bastard. But, I digress. Usually there is a #DadsTalking topic put up for discussion ahead of time, but this time there was no topic so it was a free for all. One gent (@Genuine) asked about competition and our kids and if it was a good or bad thing. It sparked a lively (and rather civil) debate on the pros and cons of competition. I was sad that I got in late and couldn't join the fray. SO, here's my two cents worth on the matter.
