I like analyzing people, their actions, reactions, the way they process information, and their problem solving skills.
"There is such a thing as TOO MUCH psychoanalysis", one of my victims often tells me.
Yes, I agree.
But my involuntary hobby has discovered a breakthrough that will make MAZ a household name.
Ok, not really. But if you care to hear my thoughts, here they are:
I have found that "common sense" is changing. What my generation and older feels is "common sense" is not what the younger generations will consider "common sense".
When your kids "clean" and you find they have stacked large, bulky items on top of small, thin items, you think "use your common sense, dang it!"
In defense of the new world,
When an adult vocalizes a comment like "I'm tapping the button, but nothing is happening", the kids are thinking "you swipe it, moron."
Even those of us that spent years at home forcing our children to play outside, encouraging creativity, and limiting technology time....
Are finding that our children still lack a thought process like ours.
Now, I am never home and my boys are on a road with college in sight.
So, I have become a weekend warrior.
I still encourage (physically push) them to play outside.
I ask them to do pointless things so they can use "common sense" from "the old world".
Throw that rope into the tree, so you can climb it.
Use this old, rotten deck banister as a ladder.
Stack these bricks, balance this wood, and run across it.
This is broken. How do you fix it?
Are there points to doing any of these things?
Are there "common sense" lessons to be taught?
There is not one piece of technology to aide them in processing:
Is this a good idea?
Is this safe?
Could I break a bone?
Could I die?
Except the good ole CNS.
.....you are in pain
......don't listen to your mom, think for yourself.
