I know exactly what your are talking about. My kids regularly thank me for limiting their TV viewing to about an hour a week and encouraging them to read. They have the same policy with their kids and the result is my kids and grand children have very happy dispositions and thoroughtly endjoy life. I’m so proud of them all!
We also talked about the fact that three of my kids are boys (one girl) and that they could end up marrying women who won't raise them this way. He assured me that that wouldn't happen, lol. I hope he's right. I'd love to have the same joy you do in seeing my grandchildren raised with the same values and love of learning. How blessed you are!
