Understanding the Modern Child

All living things know what to do with their young—except the parents of today, it seems. The old tradition of raising children, which came from an autocratic society, is no longer working in our democratic setting today.

Forever Young

Staying young is a lifestyle. No, I’m not talking about a lifestyle of becoming Hugh Hefner or Mrs. Robinson, although more power to you.
