Bernard Hare: How my father gave me a terrifying lesson at 10

This story by Bernard Hare was the first thing I read on my BBC mobile app when I woke up this morning, and it has stayed with me all day. I shared it with my soul sisters, and one of them described it as “the disguises of love.” I couldn’t have put it better.

I’m sharing it here as a bookmark for my future self, and with anyone reading my blog, for some old-fashioned inspiration for parents struggling to find ways to make their children learn to grow into better lives – no matter how hard the lesson, for writers learning to speak from the truth of their own experiences, and for the beauty of storytelling, pure and simple.
