So something eerie has happened to my two sons this week. This whole interest-led, unstructured approach to learning has had an incredibly strange backlash-effect.
My sons started SETTING THEIR ALARM CLOCKS. And even weirder, Uber got up three mornings this week BEFORE his alarm clock went off. Do you know why??
He said he wanted to go…wait for it… JOGGING!!!
That’s right. You heard me. My techno-geek son decided to get up before 7 a.m., grab his breakfast, put on his sweats, and JOG through the neighborhood.
So I barely was recuperated from the shock of that, when this morning, I noticed that Uber was sleeping in. Didn’t blame him a bit. But I heard a noise coming from the bathroom. What in the heck??!!
It was H-T. Getting dressed to go JOGGING. At 7:00 in the MORNING!! It seems that he thought brother’s idea was “pretty cool,” and decided to try it for himself.
So, am I to take it that if I remove the structure from their learning, that they are craving to instill it somewhere else??
Jena??? Karen??? Sarah???
SOMEBODY help me figure out who these young men are and what they did with my sons, please!!
