our three musketeers

Facebook before 13?
At least for our family, there are privileges in growing up that are worth waiting for (staying alone at home, having a cellphone, joining FB, watching certain movies, and so on). If we give them all those perks at a young age, we have no cards to play later! So when they are in their youth, what else can they look forward to? They already have it all and have seen it all. So they have to find something more exciting for themselves that is more thrilling or that feeds their need of accomplishment. But in our family, we decided to wait for those privileges. To have them looking forward to reach that age where they can join, or get the "cool phone" or look forward to be old enough to earn privileges that come with maturity and responsibility.
How to Have a Grand Conversation
The first question was one I learned from the immortal Andrew Kern and it is: "Should x have done y?" The second one has really enhanced the conversation I was getting out of the first, and it is from the brilliant DHM over at The Common Room: "Does that remind you of anything else?"
Lessons from An Olympic Hero
His approach to the Bible was summed up as, “Read accurately, interpret honestly, apply drastically.”

I read the poems and found my eyes filling with water. Not because she can write poetry but because she cares.
"The question is not, how much does the youth know? when he has finished his education, but how much does he care? ~Charlotte Mason"
