For me, it’s the hand sanitizer. Gotta have it, have it!

cell phone-flingers

I was sitting at a cell phone service center when a woman walks in with a cell phone that her child had flung to the floor. And just the week before, Steev was telling me about some guy’s laptop suffering the same fate in the hands of a small kid.

Um, I was like, since when did electronic gadgets become kiddy toys? Or have kids become so brilliant that they can’t be fooled by fakes any more? What do you think?

This is a touching video by my favorite speaker. If you have a minute today, spend a minute listening to this amazing talk. It will bring tears to your eyes.

When I was little, I remember hearing something similar to this. Animals have feelings, emotions, just like us. If you have a soft spot for animals, please pledge your donation to ASPCA.

more homework please!

I’m not a believer in tons of homework. With some of the kids I tutored, their moms would call and ask why I haven’t given them much homework. The whole point of homework is to reinforce learning, or at least that’s what it is to me.

But it seems to me many parents want their kids to be laden with tons of homework because that’s the thing that makes them feel like their kids are learning something and that they, the parents, are getting their money’s worth from the tutor.

Homework should be meaningful and given with the objective of reinforcing what the child has learnt. Homework for homework’s sake is a no-no with me. What’s your view on homework?
