Talk to your kids about…

Cheaper by the Dozen 2

When is competition a positive motivating force, and when does it become a problem? How were these fathers living out their own dreams through their children? Do you (or your parents) ever fall into this behavior? Why does it seem easier to try and reach our goals through others rather than ourselves?

Would you want 11 siblings? What are the pros and cons to living in a large family? How are large families usually depicted in media? Has this depiction changed in the past few years?
