StaggerLee replied to John Carle's discussion Getting the kid(s) outside in the group Manly Dads

Joe W replied to John Carle's discussion Getting the kid(s) outside in the group Manly Dads
"I find that kids who engross themselves with indoor activities have fathers who do not take them outside and play.... or haven't in a long time. My daughter loves Disney movies, particurally the princesses. She would sit and watch flick after…"

Luke Brown replied to Jack M.'s discussion What book do you think is worth re-reading and why?.
"The Great Divorce by C.S. Lewis is always a great re-read.  It only takes a few hours to read and it's got great insights in it.  It's a religious book, so if you're into that, as I am, it's a great book!  "
