the Value of TONS of reading out loud with our kids, and telling them family stories

from “Flow”.

“People who as adults develop coherent life themes often recall that when they were very young, their parents told them stories and read from books. When told by a loving adult whom one trusts, fairy tales, biblical stories, heroic historical deeds and poignant family events, (this often becomes) the first intimations of meaningful order a person gleans from the experience of the past. In contrast, we found in our studies that individuals who never focus on any one goal, or accept one unquestioningly from the society around them, tend not to remember their parents having read or told stories to them as children.” 74% on Kindle.IMG_9216
