FINDING TRUTH WHEREVER IT MAY BE FOUND:  "The are reformers who get over this difficulty by assuming that there fathers were fools; but if that be so, we can only say that folly appears to be a hereditary disease.  But the truth is that nobody has any business to destroy a social institution until he has really seen it as an historical institution."  G. K. Chesterton (h/t to Adam)

As a mom and an artist, I would like to add to the list about introducing kids to art. Keep in mind--your kids are always listening and watching the same things you are. I love Vivaldi's Four Seasons and would plug it in the cassette player in the car whenever we went on long rides (yes--I'm that old). I enjoyed it, but I never realized how much of it was absorbed into my children's brains until the afternoon of my second wedding. We had chosen "Spring" for me to walk down the aisle. I was so nervous that I couldn't tell what music was being played. Suddenly my son said 'Mom, this is "Spring", aren't we supposed to be walking now?" I was shocked--'how did you know that??'. He said 'Mom, you played that like EVERY time we drove anywhere for like a year. Of course I recognize "Spring"! I had no idea I had been teaching them music appreciation while driving them to their activities!
