With my cellphone at two percent charge, I plugged it in and did what many can not or will not do. I turned off all notifications and pretended that cellphones do not exist, or as I like to call it, Nineteen Ninety-One.
Then I taught my child(ren) a few things:
1. Drama class: How to mock a cellphone zombie. The little one got a kick out of this.
2. Physics: Conductors vs. Insulators
3. History? The NATO phonetic alphabet. “If you memorize this I will let you try soda pop and see what all the hype is about.”
4. Math: How to calculate an average. Homework – how many legs does the average dog have?
