On today's show, the Eyres talk about some of the old sayings or cliches that just don't work very well for families today. In our busy world, we need to turn it around and say "Don't Just Do Something, Sit there!" And instead of "If a thing is worth doing, it's worth doing well" we need to say "If a thing is just barely worth doing, just barely do it." We need to relax. Instead of saying "Hurry up" we need to tell ourselves, and our kids, to "slow down." And we need to be present! Instead of "Never put off till tomorrow that which you can do today" we need to "Always put off a put-off-able in favor of a now-or-never." Richard and Linda give us 20 or so of a new kind of maxim that can replace the old sayings that don't work any more.
