Because I Say So

So, if kids are actually real-life people

then here’s where I find this idea gets a little tricky: We’d have to drop our act of “because I said so” and actually try to hear kids out,

or slow down to explain things in an understandable way.

And that would suck.

Because nothing about that sounds right. And nothing about that seems normal.

But what if it was?

And what if that – was our normal?

Would I be crazy if I think that would be awesome?

And if we could orchestrate our schools that way,

then wouldn't I have the best job on the planet?
