If you enjoy Chess, Checkers, Scrabble, or any other board and table top games, then you may want to tune in! How about technology: Instagram, Facebook, and not to mention all the email and text messages you can't seem to find enough time in the day to respond too? And what about the kids, do you wonder that they may not be doing enough "brain challenging" activities to help develop effective critical thinking skills? I can certainly remember all the fun we had playing all those classic board-games!
Did you know that kids who learn and actively play board games such as Chess, Checkers, Scrabble, Monopoly - have a higher IQ and score higher on aptitude test! Did you also know that by not keeping the brain sharp and focused, can increase the onset of Dementia in adults of any age group? WOW..as the old saying goes: " If you don't use it, You will lose it!"
Event Coordinator, Ethan Parker, will join the broadcast to share about this no cost, inexpensive program that is made available to anyone - at any age. This is a great opportunity to plan for family gatherings and an inexpensive way to encourage fun all while encouraging higher learning. This is a great educational and social venue for kids and adults of any age group, who enjoy learning new skill-sets while having fun family time in the process!
Until next time.....Take Care..
Call, email, or chat...we would love to hear from you!
I live in a suburb of San Antonio. A couple of weeks ago, just before San Antonio elected its first African-American mayor, two articles jettisoned me to my computer. Fed up with the idea of blaming the teachers; with blaming the legislature and the government, my two cents jingled with the idea it’s the village’s fault. We turned over our education to our children and want to blame everyone else except the real culprits—the parents. Parents who tell the teachers how to do their jobs. Parents who feel two cars in the garage is more important than a child listening to their teacher. Parents who work to buy things they don’t need, to impress people they don’t like, with money they don’t have.
Today my students told me not every teacher wants to teach. Though we don’t want to believe that. It’s true. We believe it so much we make the salary so low, we force the best and brightest to look for better paying jobs to support their families instead of teaching our children. Don’t get me wrong! There are wonderful teachers out there, but few of them look like me. That’s how the first article riled me up. Esther Cepeda’s San Antonio Express News article on the ‘Dearth of Minority Teachers’ indicated the system is stacked against “many minority or low-income students” fulfilling their dreams of being a teacher because they just can’t afford to do that.
And just how did this happen in America? Dr. Hare tells us:
“They made the parents afraid to discipline their children, the teacher were afraid of the principals, the principals were afraid of the superintendent, the superintendents were afraid of the school board, the school board were afraid of the parents, the parents are afraid of the children and the children ain’t’ afraid of nobody.”
