    I’m not talking about being aggressive in the least. I’m just talking about bad advice ... don’t know anything about a backdoor Roth.
    This has been 100% my experience. Granted it was only 2 CPAs, but in both cases I did the Roths myself. All they had to do was prepare the taxes. They couldn't get form 8606 correct. And this was after I had a conversation about back door Roth with them prior to hiring them. One of them billed me extra to fix the mistake after I pointed it out.

    Maybe I just got unlucky with those two. Now I do Turbo Tax. Don't see myself going back. My taxes are admittedly quite easy, though.

I didn't think it would transfer much to sons as I would have expected most of your professional experience to be with teen girls. But that is probably my own bias creeping in and perhaps it's not as different as it feels like to me.
        Gotcha...
        I tell all my teen patients to not let the teenage boy put his penis inside until he has figured out how to give her an orgasm first... so of course I had to teach my boys that too! I also talk with my kids without looking at them... meaning when we are driving somewhere or I would trail run and he would mountain bike... lots of good conversations when he was younger about truth or dare games, etc. Obviously, if I need eye contact, I make it. But they are often more open to talk when not looking right at you.

          Well, that will definitely buy some time. Maybe a lot of time.

          I can't even imagine that conversation. You really need to write that book.

          I think I should embrace this more. Both my kids like to avoid eye contact when we're discussing certain things. I guess as long as they're listening, that is the important thing.

            This seems like an unusual conversation but hopefully that tidbit is reserved for after the birth control and STD education​​​​​.
