Father Forgets



I came across this reading by Dale Carnegie, and couldn’t resist sharing it today. The language may seem a little old-fashioned, but the message of the piece is as beautiful and valid as when the book first appeared in 1937. It’s called “FATHER FORGETS” by W. Livingston Larned. You can find it in Carnegie’s amazing book,
How to Win Friends and Influence People
  
 
Even though I had no children at the time (I’d only just met Senior Management back then), this short piece had a sledgehammer impact which stayed with me to this day. It’s message helped me immensely with my own son (now 17), as well as my twin daughters (now 15 – both of whom are severely autistic).
 
Regardless of whether or not you have children, I defy you to listen to it without feeling profoundly moved.

Sounds like a plan to me! Old people get away with more anyway.
