Adulterers relax. This isn't about you. It's uglier than that. A couple of months ago, just before he turned 8, my boy and I attended something called a Father/Son Getaway. Any sane parent will tell you this is an oxymoron, that "weekend getaway" and offspring are conceits that automatically cancel each other out.

I loved their little voices quietly detailing their complex dreams. Their proud tones were not lost on anyone. Each child was very focused on the art they created and the play they enjoyed. Their faces were beaming as their work was hung on the walls around us.

The fact that the majority of modern Jewish emigration came from Central and Eastern Europe created the mistaken perception in America that Jews are only white. We feared that Jonah would be forced to choose between his racial and religious identities.

For a young child who is accustomed to separating from mommy or caretaker in the morning, there is the issue of attention. Young children do not care if the attention is negative or positive as long as it takes the caretaker away from everything else around them.

As someone who attended Camp Kinder Ring when I was younger, I knew what it was like to have camp end, and miss everyone so much that it hurt. You never knew when or if you would ever see them again, and the thought of losing someone forever was the knot you thought would never untie.

My crush also went to my camp, and I fantasized he would ask me to dance to "In Your Eyes," which was played every time, because it was the early 90s and John Cusack was still ruining romantic gestures for everyone between the ages of 12 and death.

To be honest, I've never been a big fan of camping. In fact, I've never quite gotten the whole idea of "roughing it" because it has always seemed a contrary notion to me. But glamping, on the other hand, is an entirely different story.
