That Looks Staged

Another child’s bedroom in Los Angeles was suspiciously tidy with a stylish airplane mobile hanging down. “That looks staged,” an anthropologist observed, and the team discussed what that might mean. These were children who were driven everywhere in SUVs with carefully managed after-school activities. The researchers noted that the moms were also “staging” their children’s development.

They were trying to shape children who were creative, fun, outgoing, humorous, intelligent, and quiet all at the same time.

Our efforts in hackschooling has been so, so fun and I enjoy including new thoughts about not just the “work” but the environments as well.

Everything is on the table. Why the heck not?
