  • Childlike Faith

    Little Amy likes to climb. Barely two, she’s very agile, and her parents are forever finding her giggling at their eye level—from the back of the sofa, atop the desk, or standing on a chair. Each time, they scold her and admonish her never to do it again. But Amy is a fairly typical toddler. She’s yet to fall, so she has no sense of the potential for pain and injury that concerns her parents. They’ll hear her, and turn just in time to reach out as

  • For Someone You Know

    You’ve heard it before. Among many others, Mark Twain noted our odd preference for work on behalf of those we don’t really know. Tom Sawyer found how easy it was to enlist kids to paint a fence that didn’t belong to them while they avoided painting their own. Well, is it sensible to allow our children to earn spending money cutting someone else’s lawn, if they avoid cutting the one at home? Sometimes, it just seems easier to serve others than those we know
