Our 5-year-old son Daniel wouldn't last a day in a school like this.  You give him an arbitrary object, and the next thing you know he's Buzz Lightyear of Star Command, making laser noises as he waves the object around.

Oh, did I mention that we'll be homeschooling him?  :-)

My cousin's 3-year-old has a piece of a toy railroad track that is sort of pointed at the end. He calls it his knife. It's almost always in his possession and at the ready if he has to lunge at a wild animal or has to "cut" a piece of rope.

Boys today are being raised by the state as wussies. God help us all.

One of my cousins has the sense to send her boy to an all- boys school where the teachers and administration realize that "boys will be boys."
