The moms of our own childhoods were not much different from us, but they DID have one important tool for child rearing that we in the 21st century have dropped. And sold. And thrown away.

Growing up, my house had a special room that provided words of wisdom and sage advice on every topic of moral importance. All I had to do was walk inside this loud, multi-colored area and my eyes were assaulted by more verbiage than that of a long-winded preacher at a summer revival.
