RE: throw away society

Relax, Auralie.  Children have a way of loosening the tightest parents. The
number of things he's exposed to won't hurt him and it may help him find
something he really loves to focus on in the onslaught of variety.  In my
experience, children never love the music their parents do, though the
exposure doesn't hurt them.  However, the rejection of mom & dad's music is
bound to irritate the parents!  LOL!!!  I loved soft rock.  Mom and dad were
into country and big band music.  My kids were into folk and (of course)
country.  The grandboy, God love him, likes my soft rock much to the chagrin
of his mother.  

What can I say?  Kids will be kids!  (I was pretty idealistic and uptight
about how Bill and I would raise our girls, too.  We did teach them to read
early, only for them to be really bored when they went to school.  We took
them (while they were in grade school) to the theatre (The King and I with
Yule Brenner) and Shakespeare in the park (Comedies only) to the ballet and
hiking, etc.  Now they have figured out what they like and since they are no
longer teens, admit they like ballet, the theatre and Shakespeare.  The
music?  Well, it's a nit.  Now I'm just working on making them gardeners!

I hear what you're saying, Kitty, and I do have quite a few CDs and a CD 
player - even play them on my computer.  But I have several hundred vinyl
some dating back to the 50s.  I don't play them much any more - the CDs are
convenient - but every now and then I want hear one of them for some reason.

I don't have the capacity to  burn CDs yet - my DH does but he is so 
technophobic I have to show him how to do things in WORD. I do have the
capacity to put 
the records on tape.  Maybe I'll work up to the other.
  I had to send back the new computer I tried to buy this fall because the 
stupid tech "help" who was to set it up said it wouldn't run the program I
to use for my indexing work.  I have since found out he was wrong, but there

was a time limitation and so back it went.  Maybe this winter when things 
settle down a bit I will get back to working things like that out.  It's
been a 
hectic fall. 

  What I really wanted to do - - - my youngest son, at age 40, has produced
child.  He and his wife say this is going to be a "renaissance baby" and
decorated his room with mathematical equations and quotes from Shakespeare, 
etc.  They have been playing Bach and Mozart for him at bedtime. They had
enrolled in a "music appreciation" class at six months. I think this is
if a bit over the top, but I said he should also be exposed to all kinds of 
music, especially jazz and folk music.  Since I have a good collection of
both, I 
wanted to make some tapes for them to play as alternatives to the highbrow 
stuff.  But if they don't have a tape player, there's no point.  By the time
get around to making him CDs, he will probably have become a prodigy of some

sort.  I just hope they can relax a bit and let him be a normal child.  The 
mother is an engineer - a real, licensed one - and an absolute
perfectionist.  I 
am just afraid she can't cope with the normal mess and chaos that goes with 
small boys.
Auralie - trying to unwind after a very hectic week.
