So why does it take a Harvard study to tell us this? Well, it's nice anyway to have these reminders. Your kids may not always thank you, but all the time you take with them has a huge impact on the people they become.

A lovely quote from Ansel Adams: "I often wonder at the strength and courage my father had in taking me out of the traditional school situation and providing me with these extraordinary learning experieces. I am certain he established the positive direction of my life that otherwise, given my native hyperactivity, could have been confused and catastropic. I trace who I am and the direction of my development to those years of growing up in our house on the dunes, propelled especially by an internal spark tenderly kept alive and glowing by my father."
