    This isn't a new story. This occurred in 2006:

    http://www.rethinkingschools.org/archive/21_02/lego212.shtml

    I don't know if this is still the case at Hilltop, since legos and building are listed on their current website in the cirriculum.

    But whether it happenned in 06 or today, that's just stupid! The Hilltop Children's Center should be ashamed of themselves. There's an appropriate way to teach kids to share. Hilltop obviously doesn't know how to teach that.

    I used to love playing with Legos when I was a kid. I don't see what Legos have to do with private ownership. If anything I thought people could test their imagination by building the coolest things. The only problem I had is I never had enough parts to build the bigger things.

    Wow. Here I thought Legos were a hazard because a kid could choke trying to swallow one. My, my, my, stupid me, I never thought those legos might one day cause my children to be property owners. (GASP) I'd better smash those bad capitalistic legos with my rollin' pin!

    oh no, they don't care if a child chokes to death on a lego, only if they learn ownership, which apparently is more lethal then choking to death.

    You might be able to use that rolling pin as a way to simulate a tornado, earthquake, hurricane, or flooding. Then tell the kids that they need to rebuild. That'll teach them a life lesson. :laugh:



    I still don't see how a child can learn about private ownership with Legos. Maybe someone can explain that to me. I always thought that if someone allowed you to borrow them, then you return the Legos when you are done playing with them. If they are yours, then they are like any other toy. As a child, it was a toy. I never though anything about owning what I built (mostly because I had some odd colored bricks to complete what I made).

    Well, according to those teachers, I'd say they'd make the kids with more legos give what they have to the kids who lost their legos in the disaster. Then the kids who got the free legos would be taught an entitlement mentality and sue the teachers for not giving them better legos in the first place. . .oh boy, I could really have some fun with this one.:tongue3:

    Or accuse them of not giving them better logos because they are racist which is only used when their argument fails and can no longer hold any water.
