TL;DR: Think parenting’s just a 9-to-5 with diaper changes and homework checks? Think again! Enter the PID Model, your guide to understanding parenting as the ultimate identity glow-up. It’s not about filling out job applications; it’s about filling lives with love, (un)(re)learning, and a dash of chaos. This isn’t your typical “how-to-parent” spiel — it’s a revolution in empathy and support, tailor-made for the superhero role of a lifetime. *Sorry I have to add my AfroNerd in*
