How To Give Your Child Wings

Every morning when I drive my 10 year old son to school we ask each other silly, hypothetical questions during the drive. Sometimes it’s a “Would You Rather?” question – like would you rather be invisible or have the ability to fly? Today it was a “What’s Your Favorite?” question and the topic at hand was animals.
