That’s the point Doc…a generation just smart enough to run the machines and push the buttons. Sounds sinister, but it seems so obvious to those of us paying attention.
I’ve never called it “mud play,” but we play in mud (in a clay pit) every summer. It is a great sensory experience and, given that one can purchase clay to put into the bathtub for this purpose, maybe even has potential for detox. Most importantly, it is great fun.
WOW! I am having a wonderful time reading various articles on your webisite. I grew up going to public school, I was quickly labeled as “dislexic” and really struggled to learn anything. I finally discovered (WITHOUT the help of teachers or parents) ways that is easy for me to learn, and have developed many talents. My husband and I have desided to homeschool our children. We are going to use the, multiple intelligences, method. Thank you for having this website. I am finding it helpful, and interesting.
