I just got home from taking the kids to see ?The Incredibles? movie. A few years ago I might have snubbed my nose at this movie. It has excessive violence and one of the children says ?shut up? twice. A few years ago I would have been appalled at a little boy giving the enemy […]

I was so surprised at how much the boys participated in the discussion. It was obvious that they […]
