I was super tired. It had been a day full of begging the children to do their chores. I had taken away electronics and offered incentives. Nothing seemed to work. My children were doing everything halfway and I was sick of it. But could I really teach them a lesson in diligence with dry spaghetti?

"These fallacies and the logic taught with them are, in my mind, a crucial part of our homeschool curriculum. This is information I want to arm my kids with and I am glad to have found it in such a fun and easy to understand format! If you are looking for a good logic curriculum for your child, I would recommend this one, and while you are at it, this is a great refresher for us parents and teachers out there!"

Fitting Words Classical Rhetoric
Famous Orator highlight from Fitting Words: Classical Rhetoric for the Christian Student by James Nance and illustrated by George Harrel.
John Chrysostom (AD 349–407).
John was archbishop of Constantinople from 398 to 404. A persuasive preacher and orator, he was surnamed Chrysostom—Greek for “golden-mouthed”—for his eloquence.
“It is this that ruins churches, that you do not seek to hear sermons that touch the heart, but sermons that will delight your ears with their intonation and the structure of their phrases, just as if you were listening to singers and lute-players. And we preachers humor your fancies, instead of trying to crush them. We act like a father who gives a sick child a cake or an ice, or something else that is merely nice to eat--just because he asks for it; and takes no pains to give him what is good for him; and then when the doctors blame him says, 'I could not bear to hear my child cry.' . . . That is what we do when we elaborate beautiful sentences, fine combinations and harmonies, to please and not to profit, to be admired and not to instruct, to delight and not to touch you, to go away with your applause in our ears, and not to better your conduct.” —Homily 30 in Acts of the Apostles
