    The Salesian schools sound wonderful. Too bad there don’t appear to be too many of them. From what I can see, there are 2 in CA and one in NY. I don’t know if they’re boarding schools or not. I’m hearing more and more data that all-boy schools can be a very good thing. The average school today is not set up for the average boy but more for the average girl. The only all-boy school in this CT area that I know of is Xavier and I don’t know much about it from a Catholic perspective. There is Avon Old Farms but that’s a very secular, exclusive school from what I gather. It’s good to keep our ears to the ground for the ideal settings for each of our kids. They’re all different.

    I enjoyed learning about St. John Bosco. As parents, we would do well to use the kindness *trait* more frequently. Atleast I know I should.

    God bless you all.
