In Topic: There are some odd double standards in our society about model building...

02 September 2014 - 02:59 PM

When my kids were in 4-H, some of the projects they did, received almost no input from us as parents at all. There were others that needed some instruction and coaching to help the kids improve their skills, and to help them do a better job. That was ok if the child actually did the work. Sometimes a teacher has to actually show the child how to do something for them to get it. The problem that I see, is that, most people see model building as something children do, that doesn't need any coaching from an adult. They don't appreciate the skills that need to be developed, over time, to produce a top notch model. It's just a toy they put together. Those attitudes won't go away with some people.

The guy that stopped in front of my house, in the middle of the street, to scream at his wife, at 12:15 am. What a JERK!
