Your children depend on the spoken word for communicating, Doug. Writing it down is the least of their worries, though their teachers will no doubt do their best to get them worrying. Ninety-nine percent of the time, same for me. But you and I have refined the way we use the written word. It's been hard, but it's been rewarding. Your children have an erudite fellow for their dad. They'll grow up loving expressing themselves in writing, but what's the rush?
