Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Raise children to make the world a better place

I recently enjoyed the privilege of seeing and hearing radio talk-show host Dennis Prager speak on the topic of happiness. He only spoke for 20 minutes, but he said more in that short span than most talk-show people are able to say in two hours.

I'd been walking into the warm silence of mid-morning, absorbing the stillness and the pulse of soil awaiting seed, when a sudden rush of shrieking and squawking burst from among the pine trees and scrub oaks to my right. I stopped short, just in time to see the mockingbird swoop down toward the ground about 6 feet ahead of me, followed closely by a pileated woodpecker.
