  • With Father’s Day recently past, I’ve been thinking a lot about how I parent my kids.  Specifically, I’ve been thinking about what types of things come into their lives and how they are influenced by them.

    For example, my little girl has been learning her colors.  A couple of months ago as she was first getting this concept, she demonstrated her first awareness of color.  She brought a brown plastic toy to me.  I asked her what color it was, and she very plainly declared, “Chocolate!”
