A Dream

THE school:

-No chairs.
-PHYSICAL education EVERYDAY.
-Integrated physical activities in all subjects.
-A state park type location, lots of trees, hills, and water.
-Busses drop the kids off at the gate which is 2 miles from the school (leave your shoes at the gate, sport shoes will be provided when necessary).
-A lunch house located 1 mile from the school (with REAL food).

I could go on and on...

I'm sick of reading about, dealing with, and prescribing "corrective" exercises for movement dysfunction.

Move.

Amen to the "corrective" stuff.

As far as the school goes; How about we tell them "no" once in a while. They actually compete with one another. Their feelings might even get hurt once in a while. We teach them to take responsibility for their lives and their actions.

Classes might involve some common sense stuff that they will need to use the rest of their lives....nutrition, exercise, personal finances, etc.

The list could go on and on.

Agreed. We've become soft and weak.

I think it is just easier to medicate and enroll in special education so kids will focus, listen and learn. :-)
