Meet Harvey

I raised one daughter of my own, who is 28 years old now. I have always loved children, and if I had known how good my daughter would turn out, I would have had at least 10 kids of my own. Over the years, I have coached kids in tennis, babysat, read to them, cared for them, etc. I have had excellent experiences with toddlers and other children, up to high school age. My child-rearing philosophy is fairly simple: expose them to lots of good things, like music, skating, rock climbing, learning, theatre, museums, opera, dance, etc., and let them choose.

I raised one daughter of my own, who is 28 years old now. I have always loved children, and if I had known how good my daughter would turn out, I would have had at least 10 kids of my own. Over the years, I have coached kids in tennis, babysat, read to them, cared for them, etc. I have had excellent experiences with toddlers and other children, up to high school age. My child-rearing philosophy is fairly simple: expose them to lots of good things, like music, skating, rock climbing, learning, theatre, museums, opera, dance, etc., and let them choose. My daughter, for instance, was a decent tennis player, but her heart was not in it, so although I was a professional tennis player back in the day, when she told me she did not want to take any more lessons, I readily agreed. She then turned to boxing (real boxing) and worked out regularly at a boxing gym in East Oakland. She then switched to Cal. where she worked out with the Cal. boxing team. Finally, she turned to Tae Kwan Do and got her black belt while still in high school. Oh, I almost forgot her rock climbing prowess. She was taking gymnastics lessons in Emeryville, and wandered into a rock climbing business one afternoon when they were just finishing the facility (about 20 years ago; the business was only the second indoor climbing gym in the US then). She tried it the following week and scurried up the easy wall like a little ant. Well, that was all she wrote. By the time she was 11 years old she was the 11 and under champ in the US, and retired from rock climbing when she was 12! She still climbs occasionally for her own enjoyment.
