Talking to Children about the Shooting
December 17, 2012
The whole art of teaching is only the art of awakening the natural curiosity of young minds for the purpose of satisfying it afterwards.

I'm a little bothered by an ad to offer a discount for training material dealing with the topic of violence at a time like this. It's as if people are trying to prosper from the disaster. I would almost feel more comfortable if you had simply listed materials and resources and left it at that but to offer a discount just doesn't sit well with me.
