In our social media culture, I see many parents apologizing before sharing a bragg about   their child. I see many parents having no problem “showing off” their child in a cool outfit or a vacation spot. Why when it’s something about a child’s accomplishment is there a need for qualifying statements?   Where does this apologetic-ness come from? Why are parents apologizing for their pride? Why is it easier to say “my kid is a pain in the butt?”
