Advice for Fathers

A savvy collection of parental warnings from James Stenson:

Advice for Fathers

I agree with most of it and especially like that Stenson stresses that high school is not the best time of one's life. Atticus and I often talk about that (and Atticus tells his students the same thing.)  The world does kids a real disservice when we tell them that high school is the pinnacle of existence.  (Such a message might also encourage them to do memorably stupid things, no?)

(I came across this article thanks to the CERC -- the Catholic Education Resource Center.  I don't often have enough time to read through all the linked articles, but they do a great job of rounding things up.)
