Pages: 9, 191

Article

. . . So you should write your congressman?

GO ahead and expound your views to your next-door neighbor-- but don't stop there. Write your congressman... he's the one who can help you. Maybe you don't even know his name, but that doesn't mean he doesn't know about you. You're his public, the reason he's in office. He wants to please you, if possible.

You can help your children develop happy personalities.
