“I’ve never doubted for a second that my dad loves me, but, man, there were times when I could have sworn he wanted to see, me suffer. I can remember several times when I was really struggling with something-nothing serious, but to a kid, it sure seemed like it-and he refused to jump in and save the day. Once, in high school, I was completely stumped by my calculus homework. I didn’t get the concept behind it at all, so I went to my dad and begged him to solve the problem for me. (He is really good at math.) “I’m not just going to give you the answer,” he said. “Dad, come on,” I pleaded. “If I don’t get it right, it could bring down my grade in the class!” He wasn’t fazed. “You’ve got to do this on your own, Kristen,” he said. “If I solve it for you, how will you ever understand calculus? You’ll thank me later. I promise.” (Yeah, right.) He advised that I go back to my textbook and identify the specific areas where I was having trouble. Then he suggested I get to class early the next day and ask my teacher to review the material with me. It was the last thing I wanted to do, but I had no other choice. Turns out, sometimes father knows best: My teacher helped me grasp the concept I was struggling with and I learned how to solve the homework problem myself. By the end of the year I had one of the highest grades in the class.”

–Kristen Hadeed, from “Permission To Screw Up” (Penguin, 2017). (The dad she’s referring to is Flagler County Attorney Al Hadeed.)
