In the you cannot make this stuff up department....

"When using and choosing technology for children teachers should let children pretend with the types of gadgets they see their parents using. Stock the dramatic play area with a non-working mouse and keyboard, cell phone and/or electronic music device."

Or maybe just give them a box of crayons and let them draw a picture of a bunny with a pancake on its head.

I say we stock the fridge with some empty bottles of Guinness. Or, to cater to a different demographic, some empty Keystone Light cans. After all, it's what adults drink.

Dear John,

My frontal lobe edited out some obvious vulgar high-tech tools. The more we design classrooms, the more I think the children are better off outside.

I have never regretted a single moment under the sky. Can't say the same about ceilings.

We went to the socialized playing area (aka the park) under a surprisingly dark gray skay. My daughter abandoned the slide to watch the sun's rays peak through a cloud. It was beautiful. That type of thing doesn't happen under fluorescent lights.
