Zen of Small Tasks: Signals and Messages "In the year 2032, we decided to take a path less travelled." -- +John……

I am chilled to the bone by this one: A young life lost due to schooling and due to the hatred and ignorance of adults! What is WRONG with our culture? Why are boys targeted for such horrific treatment? Don't any adults have common sense anymore? Do they not remember once being young? Wake up! The human brain is not fully developed until age 24. It is NATURAL for adolescents to make rash, impulsive, thrill-based choices because they think primarily with their temporal lobes rather than their prefrontal cortexes. They should NOT be punished for natural kid behavior. A simple parental discussion would have been plenty; this child would have laughed about this 20 years from now, but now he can't- the anti-child school and the anti-child, anti-male legal system drove him to take his life.
