I was just looking up Isaac’s school’s phone number to call him in sick. (Sadly, if he’s too sick to go to school, he’s probably also too sick to take care of Henry and Hazel all day.) At his school’s homepage, I saw this:
“Schools need to be places where a student will have contact with older people who have vital lives of their own, and who are themselves authentic human beings.”
So true. Authentic human beings make much better role models than robots or monkeys. Really, almost any form of counterfeit human being is going to have some deficiencies as a role model.
Bunnies are not known for their table manners. And R2D2 never makes his bed.
(Also, who knew I would get to re-use this illustration so soon?)
