We are huge fans of this saint!
Having started out with four boys, we learned early to rely on his heavenly assistance, and base our homeschooling and much of our parenting philosphy on his methods. Parents might be interested in this letter from St. John Bosco regarding the teaching of children. This great priest knew how to deal with children, but especially boys, let me tell you! We have had great success using him as a role model.Since tomorrow is his feastday, we've been reading aloud this version of the story of Don Bosco this week. The children especially love the ghost story with the Catholic explanation and love the stories of Grigio, his dog.
I'd like to send up our public thanks, again, to you, St. John Bosco, for all you help through the years, and our continuing petitions to remain by our side as a mentor in education, a counselor in our trials, and a guide to heaven! Dear St. John, pray for us!
