When Is It OK to Write About Your Kid?

When is it OK to write about your own kid? It's a pretty germane topic on this blog. Slate's Emily Bazelon -- no stranger to (or shrinking violet about) writing about her kids -- chimes in.

Here's the thing: You can recognize it. You can rationalize it. But you're still whoring out your children - without consent - to advance your own career or ego (one or the other...often both).

Now, where was I? Oh, yes: Gabe shows a remarkable disinterest in sports lately.
