Ross has been thinking about adults’ responses to speed and the duality of how we tell children “hurry, hurry” one minute and “slow down” the next. Are we reflecting on why and when we correct children for their rate of speed? Tom worries that we want children to learn things faster and faster. Mike points out that one of the drawbacks of group care is that it is not set up to meet the needs of outliers within the community. Joey wonders how we can actually help children when there are times that things need to go faster. We all agree that everyone should have a chance to enjoy the gift of slowing down sometimes.
