Long live the arts!
It has been proven that right brained strong people are the future of the world. Be sure to give yourself and your kids plenty of opportunities to engage in doing and enjoying cultural activities.
THAT will be their saving grace in a complex world where flexibility and creativity will be their meal ticket- NOT how well they can answer multiple choice questions. Even the science, business and math domains realize that they need to rely on creative thinking to come up with solutions to benfit mankind. That's why doctors at Columbia Medical School are required to go to the Metroplitan Museum of Art to learn on how to really "look" so that they can diagnose patients better. MBA Business students in So. Cal are sent out to engage in creative activities because they were entering business school with such paltry creative thinking skills.
Tonights topic of conversation at the dinner table:
What could you do with a brick? Idea taken from the Outliers Book( Let the fun start! Post your answers here! (keep it family friendly please!)

Here's one of mine: place it on top of a lemon apply pressure to make lemon juice.

What could you do with a brick?

I like your food-related use. Here's another. Put peeled acorns in a basket or some other porous pouch. Put the basket in a stream to wash out the tannic acid and weight it down with the brick. Use the brick to grind the acorns. Then build a fire and heat the brick. Place the brick in a basket with acorn meal to cook it.
