"Children are required to be in school, where their freedom is greatly restricted, far more than most adults would tolerate in their workplaces. In recent decades we’ve been compelling them to spend ever more time in this kind of setting, and there’s strong evidence that this is causing psychological damage to many of them. And as scientists have investigated how children naturally learn, they’ve realized that kids do so most deeply and fully, and with greatest enthusiasm, in conditions that are almost opposite to those of school….Most people assume that the basic design of today’s schools emerged from scientific evidence about how children learn. But nothing could be further from the truth. Schools as we know them today are a product of history, not research.   …. Research has shown that people of all ages learn best when they are self-motivated, pursuing answers to questions that reflect their personal interests and achieving goals that they’ve set for themselves. Under such conditions, learning is usually joyful. The evidence for all of this is obvious to anyone who’s watched a child grow from infancy to school age. Through their own efforts, children figure out how to walk, run, jump, and climb. They learn from scratch their native language, and with that, they learn to assert their will, argue, amuse, annoy, befriend, charm, and ask questions.  ….
They do all of this before anyone, in any systematic way, tries to teach them anything. This amazing drive and capacity to learn does not turn itself off when children reach five or six. But we turn it off with our coercive system of schooling.”

yes.

YES YES YES YES YES

trying to train a weak pokemon and it faints so you bring in your strongest pokemon and absolutely murder them in revenge

Ugh
I didn’t want to drive and get lunch for my mom from the place she makes me go every other day and now she’s pissed off and being passive aggressive and I think using chores as a way to punish me
She just sent me a text saying “dishes. Now” and I told her I wasn’t home and made a joke about where I was because I didn’t realize she was mad and she said “get your fucking ass down here right now”
Like jfc mom you’re a grown woman with your own car you can go get your own lunch. I don’t want to waste what little gas I have getting you lunch because you don’t feel like putting pants on. I already spent a week taking care of my brothers and then this week driving them to school every day for her. I am done. Give me one day where I’m off work and not at your beck and call like a fucking servant. Leave me alone.
I’m really seeing all the reasons I left in the first place and now I’m even more excited to move out with spencer in the near future.
