Bread Dough

Fair Warning: Kids Are Sponges

“Based on my own experience, I believe the brain is as soft and malleable as bread dough when we’re young. I am grateful for every class trip to the symphony I went on and curse any night I was allowed to watch The Brady Bunch, because all of it stuck. Conversely, I am now capable of forgetting entire novels that I’ve read, and I’ve been influenced not at all by books I passionately love and would kill to be influenced by. Think about this before you let your child have a Game Boy.”

—Ann Patchett, novelist, The Getaway Car: A Practical Memoir About Writing and Life (2011)
