#DadChat Discusses Music as God’s Drug

How does music affect your life? How has music been a part of your family? Do you listen to the music your kids listen to? Do they listen to your music?

#DadChat this week, Thursday December 22 at 6:00 – 7:00 p.m., PST, will discuss music. “Music is God’s Drug” is a quote from Dennis Prager and that is the title of this week’s A Dad’s Point-of-View column, which is loosely the homework for this chat. Enjoy the Ten Best Xmas Songs list and feel free to comment on them or mention your favorites during the chat.
