truth in wordplay

Ever notice how the word parent turns into the word parenthetical if you keep at it long enough?

That’s the parental goal, right? To teach and empower and be there so that, as the child grows, we become less and less the subject or object of his or her sentence, more and more a supporting clause . . .
