I’m always seeing pieces in the media about what to tell your children about this or that. My default position has always been to tell my children nothing. My kids are pretty dumb. I mean, they do ok in school but they’re just not all that into the world. They like playing. They like throwing balls at each other’s heads. They like monkey bars and baseballs. They like reading. Well, some of them do. The ten year old can’t read while dribbling a basketball so given the fact that books don’t bounce, her decision was pretty easy. So us Archbold kids have pretty much been ignoring the world since 1999.

But today I spoke with them about Boston. Are you talking to your kids about it? What are you saying? Go to The National Catholic Register to read about what I said and then please head to the combox and let me know what you’re telling your kids.
