Someone told me the other day, ‘Wolfie, you are a wise man. Tell me wisdom about raising a child.’. I looked him in the eye and said: ‘Son, you cannot raise a child with love, you feed him, love is not edible, it is the ingredient in that portion of food. It is the ingredient of that glass of water and ingredient of that hug. It is a nutrient. You can not raise a child on love, it needs lots of other nutrients to grow.’

Now I ask you why did he look at me weirdly after that?
