Day 9: How Important is Education to Me?

OK today is Day 9. Education is the theme. So just how important is education?

Education is vital even in the most basic forms, without it we cannot function. Children begin their education at birth. 

The basic ability to read will take you far, it keeps you safe. While you do not need the vocabulary of a college professor or nuclear scientist you do need to have a vocabulary in some form or the other to function in the day to day of the world.

Never too young for books
Starting with something children enjoy instead of forcing them to use what you want them to helps to ensure that the love of learning is caught early. Just because it is educational does not mean it has to be boring. 

Children remember best when they are having fun. Storytime can be learning time, all you have to do is follow the cues that your child gives you.

Remembering that different children have different needs and will learn in different ways is the most important education that you will ever have.

Frustration was taking its toll on the artist as he tried to match the original color with only an ounce left in the can. The feedback on the original concept had been mixed at best and now the rains had left him with a disaster threatening his career.

“It’s a tub of ice. It is a reach to say it is hot.”
She walked away and left him sitting there to think about what he was actually trying to say.

Flash in the Pan: Regress

Up, down, right, left.
The motion was making his hands numb but he was determined beat the game once and for all. The idea that he could not make it to the end of the level by the time they called him to dinner was unacceptable.
“Is that all he does all day, at 40?”
“What caused him to regress?”
“He knows he’s dying.”
What is he dying from would cause him to regress? Is he actually regressing or simply in denial?
The word is regress, this piece comes in at 65 of the 75 word limit. For the official rules visit the M3 blog and join in the fun.
