Stolen Quote: Test Everything

Even as wisdom often comes from the mouths of babes, so does it often come from the mouths of old people. The golden rule is to test everything in the light of reason and experience, no matter from where it comes.

Mohandas Gandhi

Bad news for lazy bums. Apparently it takes work to figure out if something is wise.

              • They have gone from one extreme to another. There definitely needs to be rules to protect the children but you wouldn’t believe some of the crazy rules, not just about discipline but all sorts of things!You can tell that the higher ups making the rules never took care of children before. The steps they wanted you to go through to change a diaper would take forever and when you have a squirming baby you don’t have forever!

                • I believe it. Bureaucrats love to make rules, and they want to cover their own butts, so they make the rules over-the-top, erring on the side of safety. If I ever changed a diaper, I’d want to get it over with quickly. To hell with the rules.

                  • Exactly! Their steps for changing a diaper included changing your gloves 2x and wiping your hands with a baby wipe in between changing your gloves. Just crazy.
                    And if Johnny was standing on a table you don’t say No! You tell Johnnny how he needs to get down from the table because he may fall. Of course while you ars busy gently explaining to Johnny , he probably has already fallen off the table or 2 more kids have climbed on the table because it looks like fun.
                    I did enjoy my job though, really! LOL! πŸ™‚ We just implemented the rules when the State was there to check up on us.

                    • Don’t tell a child, “no”? How ridiculous. That’s one of the first words they learn. Kids understand, “no.” I’ll bet if the state caught you not following their rules, they would tell you, no. And in a more harsh way.

                    • Yes, kids know that word very well but No, its a negative word so we weren’t supposed to use it. And yeah, the State wouldn’t have been gentle or nice with their discipline!
