I have never been a huge fan of Angelina Jolie, but it was hard not to feel some empathy for the Hollywood actress this week when she talked about her divorce for the first time. Her lower lip trembled and eyes filled as she described her sadness and how this was "a very difficult time".
When our first daughter was born my husband and I made a family rule: no man would ever babysit our children. No exceptions. This includes male relatives and friends and even extra-curricular and holiday programs, such as basketball camp, where men can have unrestricted and unsupervised access to children.
