Good Morning! I don't know why I can't stop posting here. This healthy discussion/conversation inside of my uneducated brain doesn't worry if I'm a parent or not, one thing is for sure though, I'm no Oprah Winfrey.

I was at a HighExistence website again this morning, I'm new at this place and there was this 'most active discussion' displayed on the side of the screen. Check out 'Is ADHD ********?' talk, I followed up on this one comment 'ADHD revisited' by NeuroLogica, it's just so happens that my attention is not good so I couldn't read much of it. Does that mean my brain is disordered? It seems fine this morning, I don't need to read Arianna Huffington's book to know that I've had a good sleep.

This logical counter against scepticism on the Neurologica blog was quite interesting to read. Parents of today would be facing new generations of teachers and school administrators, I'm sure a lot depends on the policies of school districts, it's just my humble opinion that sending kids to school without first checking what the board of education is thinking about this main stream trend is an integral part of being a smart parent.

I don't know how to explain this but this big idea of 'scepticism' in general seems to differ a lot to the ones in my own culture, and dialogue between 2 sides, or between all available sides work again, differently. I say West(North America) does productive and meaningful, this makes me think of good and evil sides of efficiency.

Sam Harris, I was watching his TED talk from 2 yrs ago last night, I think there's nothing wrong with being impressed by charisma of certain people on our computer screens. He was talking about AI, and John von Neumann was mentioned in that talk.

Things being 'irrelevant' to certain people, I don't believe in such certainty. If you ever wondered if you're kids are smart or not, there are many pedestrian ways to convince one with truth/untruth, I don't think many of made up facts on the sidewalk are not so moral. Good vs Evil stories teach us about our intelligence, most people seem to know how to feel about children and their behaviors, the right/tru-ish way just might be the reverse...

Here's one rule from an Economist.
Quote:
1. Assume your temperament will always be somewhat childish and impatient, and set your rules accordingly, knowing that you cannot abide by rules for rules sake. Hope to leverage your impatience toward your longer-run advantage.
The emotional vantage point of mothers are illogical, and this of course is NOT my medical opinon.
