I know asking for 20 minutes of your time is a lot, but this is so worth it.  It’s wonderfully funny and so ‘on the mark’ that it’s frightening.  Anyone with kids of any age should take note here.  What I wouldn’t give to show this to every educator in the US…

  3. lol.. i loved his jokes, they were good 🙂

    Good point though, especially with the one example he used. I felt the same way with a friend of mine’s child. She has been diagnossed with ADHD and ODD (which this one i find hillarious, it stands for oppositional defiance disorder. Before this age, that was called “you need a lickin'”) but is 100% fine in dance class.

    So what’s wrong with her? she just doesn’t like math as far as i can tell.

  4. it’s really true. and when i look at how my son’s creativity has been squashed it infuriates me.
