Parental Wisdom

Jordana has a very good post about the vast distinction between trying to make one's child happy and trying to instill in one's child the ability to find contentment. In my humble opinion, the former is a fool's errand while the latter is the greatest service one could ever perform. And I think her formula for instilling the ability to achieve peace no matter what good or ill befalls - faith, creativity and learning - is an excellent one (not least because it happens to be the one we use with the Llama-ettes).
