This is a great piece written by a kid for kids and their parents.
Got this from a site called SummerNanny.com
Thanks to Eric Robertson for this piece

It’s not very often I get the urge to quote someone like Ashton Kutcher but I’ll make an exception:
“the sexiest thing in the world is being really smart. And being thoughtful and really generous. Everything else is crap, I promise you. It’s just crap that people try to sell you to make you feel like less, so don’t buy it. Be smart, be thoughtful, be generous.”
