Only in New York City…

…could the simple act of not sending your children to pre-school and spending time with them at home instead be described as some sort of intelligentsia trend.

From the article:

With [5-year-old] Benny, Mr. Lewis [an NYU professor] went on to say, “we embraced a hybrid between home-schooling and unschooling. It’s not structured, it’s Benny-centric, we follow his interests and desires, and yet we are helping him to learn to read and do math.” They read to him hours every day. “It’s about trying to find things we both enjoy doing,””

Funny: I thought that was called parenting.

Ginger, you need to read this article (when you learn to read). You’re part of a super-hot wave of the future and didn’t even know it!
