“Do your children view themselves as successes or failures? Are they being encouraged to be inquisitive or passive? Are they afraid to challenge authority and to question assumptions?

Imagine what they can do with the soiled sheets of four legal beds by the same writer and you can see why their tongues are slavering.”
