children don’t editorialize

Children don’t editorialize because they are too busy gathering information.

We should try not to confuse them with our assumptions and opinions, instead we can help them organized information so that they can make use of it.  What is of use to them at their stages of development and their individual personalities can find expression in relatively inexpensive and creative ways.  The important thing is what is going on in their brains, how they are learning to learn and that they have an opportunity to “play” with what they learn.

I’m trying to stream Heart Like a Wheel by Anne and Kate and it is taking forever

This is in response to Tristan Murphy circa Amateur, posting a link to video of  Bruce Pennisula performing “Shanty Song” on facebook. 

I wonder if in the future there will be lyrics like:

“my heart is like a song that can’t be downloaded, broken and faultering and misunderstood.”

Don’t get me wrong, Bruce Pennisula are great, but I suppose it is my age that makes me miss Anne and Kate when I hear them.  I should get over it, or die or something. 

RIP dear Kate.
