January 31: Don Bosco

Don Bosco (also called Giovanni or John Bosco) was a Italian priest in the mid 19th century, known for his love of children. He pioneered the “Preventive System of Education,” saying that children grow and learn best when they are loved and know that they are loved. He taught reason, religion, and kindness, frequently by using music and games.

Sounds like a good idea to me!

I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth.

3 John 1:4
