Please skip the following, first; If you are not a mother or father or grandparent, great grandparent, or don’t know someone who is .
Second….If you are sure you are not a member of the human race.
Who did I leave out ?
Proverbs 22 shares with us :”Train up your child in the way he should go, and he will not depart from it.”
Perhaps you share with me the thought that there are often disconnects in society today; and, for a variety of reasons, we may not always be accomplishing the above goal. We have been encouraged to find “new ways” of competing for the attention of our young ones; both boys and girls.
I would submit; How about the OLD ways? How about the “ADVENTURE STORY” and the act of reading it to and with them at the pre- teen age; In the early spring of their development, before diversion pushes them into the shade of overpowering competition.
I encourage you to recommend this blog that offers an ongoing inventory of diverse and very short stories to help make the case of reading among young boys, Even more: help you plant the seeds of wisdom that you may find within, that are worthy and timely.
Whew,,, that’s it …..no more.
