On Friday my son was sitting in lunch, one of his freinds told him the girls father who assaulted him was staring at him (he was there picking up his daughter), my son said he turned to look at him and said it was the first time in his life he felt like slicing another persons throat. I told him his feelings are normal (just can't act on them) and to wait for the justice system to do it's job.
My son came home and said he needed to learn power point for school. I asked what he was doing and he said he has to do something on one the schools dayings...."it's better to understand, then be understoood" so he asked me what it meant, I think he wanted my words. I really like that saying, it's pretty much how I live me life and I explained how when you understand its much easier to be understood. I like this school so far. It's a STEM based charter school for grades 6-8
Take what I say with a grain of salt, because that's all it is compared to the ocean of complexity when it comes to actions and real life.
Probably why every time my son watches a video of Donald Trump speaking he just laughs with his hand extended comment-less, since his verbal/lingusitic and reading comprehension evaluative scores fall within the ranges of the equivalent of a bachelors degree.
