Expose your children to these relevant, interesting, and lucrative fields by expanding their knowledge of what’s out there.

Take nature walks. Explore hobby and crafts stores. Visit aquariums, zoos, and museums.

Engage them with wonder and play before they have to sit through calculus and physics.

If you plant the seed at the right age, your children will love these things simply because you do. All you will have to do going forward is guide, nurture, and support their interests.


I don’t know of any other artist whose life was as successful and prolific.

Absolutely incredible!

I am sooooo going to see this.
