Let boys move around in school. Instead, teachers give boys labels, like they/we have a disease.
Thought you’d like this post:This paragraph stood out for me:
Stop Penalizing Boys for Not Sitting Still at School, Jessica Lahey gives us a survey of the language we use to describe boys' very human, primal need to move around: "ADHD, lack of focus, troublemaker, slow reader, poor listener." All these things are the result of a boy needing to run around. Depending on the language you use, you will prop up the institution of school, or condemn it.
It’s funny, I saw my 10-year-old nephew last weekend and my mom (who only had girls) said to me, “I just can’t get used to how much he runs around.” I told her (and so does my dad – all the time), that he just needs to run around. Let him.
