Judgment, Duty and Wonder
Janet, on the Unschooling Discussion list, wrote that and sent the link.
But the little kid hadn't.
That's a long article, but worth reading for anyone interested in art, psychology, how things are valued, context, culture, self esteem, finances ...
There's also duty and responsibility, though. Probably lots of those people were going to meet someone and didn't want the other person to have to wait, or they had the keys to the place they were going, and things like that. Faulting them all seems harsh.
Thanks for bringing that, Janet.
