Dear Ann Landers, I was flattered to see an excerpt from my book, "Really Important Stuff My Kids Have Taught Me" (Workman Publishing, 1994), quoted in a recent column. I am glad so many people have read and enjoyed the book.
Wouldn't we all be a little wiser if we spent more time listening to what our kids are telling us? Thanks, Ann. -- Cynthia Copeland Lewis, Keene, N.H.
Dear Cynthia Copeland Lewis, I am happy to give you credit for your delightful list of lessons learned through a child's eyes. The one I liked best was, "If you're going to draw on the wall, do it behind the couch." It took me back to my childhood, because my sister and I used to do a lot of that sort of thing.
