The Joys and Perils of Having Interesting Kids

“Your kids require you most of all to love them for who they are, not to spend your whole time trying to correct them.”
― Bill Ayers

“What a kid I got, I told him about the birds and the bees and he told me about the butcher and my wife.”

― Bill Cosby
