Eliminate half the world (in a good way)

No parent has to do anything. They choose to do things.

So being in that world of choices, where do they decide to stop and why?

There comes the philosophy back.

Through all the innumerable factors, how DO people decide?

By deciding what principles they are following. Each principle one clings to eliminates about half the choices in the world easily, and in a good way. Each additional principle eliminates some more options, until the world becomes manageable.

  1. I love this! After four years of a very rigorous violin program with three classes per week, my son finally convinced me to let him study violin at home. We have freed ourselves from the afterschool program, and not only are we saving money, but we are all much happier. Violin was always something he asked for, never my idea, but now it is a happy endeavor instead of a difficult ordeal.
