Find that I often love ABSOLUTE QUIET when I am intensely working, studying, diagramming Greek sentences, et al. Find that my kids are just the opposite. They had to have NOISE, MUSIC or tumultuous activity going on all around them. TV blaring, headphones playing tapes, friends laughing - THEN they could concentrate. Is this a "youth" thing? I have a poll in the Forum for Polls if you want to take it, but would appreciate thoughts here. Tanks.
