Imagine your child is about to take a super important test.
Like the SAT, or the MCAT, or the Bar, or even a Biology final.
Imagine you are allowed to sit and watch your child take said test.
And you know ALL the answers.
(Because you are a genius.)
But you’re not allowed to tell your child the right answer.
You can only sit quietly and watch as your child reads each question and does his best.
Now imagine your child is a baby, and the results of this all-important test will determine whether your baby gets a hole in his neck, more brain surgery, or maybe some other inhumane but medically necessary intervention.
And all he has to do to get the answers right is breathe.
