“A child educated only at school is an uneducated child.”
– George Santayana
We here at Small Dog Syndrome got some fun emails from a previous post (the post about things one’s kids ought to know. Not the post about beating one’s kids. Very different). And so, because it’s summer and I need something to do on my lunch breaks and weekends, I think I’ll start up a bit of a series on the subject (again, about what’s one’s children out to be exposed to, not domestic violence. Just so we’re clear). Nothing formal, and certainly not organized; that’s just not the way we do things around here. Let’s think of it as an ongoing project that will intermittently interject into our regularly scheduled reading.
I’m opening this up for discussion as well, be free with your comments, accolades, scathing rebukes towards my taste, etc. And by all means, add your own suggestions! I’m looking for books, movies, TV shows, vacation spots, and the like, all I ask is that you keep it culturally-minded. Meaning while Spongebob Squarepants may have been your favorite drivel growing up, I’m looking for the quality things that you’d truly want your future spawn to know of. More importantly, why.
