Biz wonders if we are incapable of letting our children solve their own problems and if this is why our children can’t actually problem solve! Theresa suggests maybe its less about ability and more about personality. What’s worse, stunting our children’s development or having to accept they may be totally different than you? Both seem like a reason to hide in the bathroom. Plus Biz gets thumb tacky, Theresa takes cover and we talk to Temple University professor and mother Dr. Ama Mazama about the growing trend and reasoning behind home schooling for African American children.
