An Interview with iVish

Last updated: 7/20/2007
The Fool:
Have you had a brush with fame, the proverbial '15 minutes'? Tell us about it.
iVish:
Oh absolutely...I am world famous. All my family all over the world knows me... ;-)
The Fool:
What is your favorite techno gadget?
iVish:
soon it will be the iPhone.
The Fool:
As a former child and possibly parent of one now, share your best advice about raising children.
iVish:
Never punish your kids. Provide them incentives. Results are almost always better than when you give them a whacking.
It is a continuous learning process. Give them as much love as you possibly can. They deserve it. You will be amazed how soon they grow up and then you will repent not giving them everything you would have liked to give them.
