ChickyBabe, that's the sort of thinking am learning to keep in mind for when I'll have mine. How much do you believe what can tell ones children?

waz, sotrue. I believe its the root of all misunderstandings; the lack of honesty.

I think this is really a good point - I once heard it said that children's writing is the hardest kind, because kids immediately know when you're being phony or patronising.

When is it that we loose our ability to see right through, like a child?

Margaret, normally MTV contributes to this downward spiral. ;d

Leading by example is key. Someday I will be punished with extremely hyper children.

Adeline said...

I agree with aadil. somewhere in teenagerhood people start wanting to believe things that aren't true maybe.
