How quickly nature falls into revolt; When gold becomes her object!; For this the foolish over-careful fathers; Have broke their sleep with thoughts, their brains with care; Their bones with industry;
Come mothers and fathers throughout the land; And don't criticize what you can't understand; Your sons and your daughters are beyond your command; Your old road is rapidly agin'; Please get out of the new one if you can't lend your hand; For the times they are a-changin';
In my view, far from deserving condemnation for their courageous reporting, the New York Times, the Washington Post and other newspapers should be commended for serving the purpose that the Founding Fathers saw so clearly.
In spite of the seven thousand books of expert advice, the right way to discipline a child is still a mystery to most fathers and... mothers. Only your grandmother and Ghengis Khan know how to do it.
Most of the things we do, we do for no better reason than that our fathers have done them or that our neighbors do them, and the same is true of a larger part than we suspect of what we think.
