School moving too fast... maybe your kids need some practice reading with a patient ear or even reading lessons from scratch.

and inferior alternative options.

Want To Hear A Good Joke?
It's worth a quick chuckle.
Whenever I'm in danger of being swept away by everything going on, I tell a joke. Here is one of my favourites that a client of mine told me years ago.
There is a man floating in a hot air balloon who has lost his way. Upon seeing another man walking through a field below, he lowers the balloon and yells down.
"Hey friend, where am I?"
The man looks up and then down and then back up.
"You appear to be in a hot air balloon floating a few meters above the ground in the middle of a field."
The man shakes his head and replies with frustration.
"You must be in I.T."
"Yes, how did you know?"
"Because everything you just said is technically correct but I can't do a damn thing with it!"
"Ha!" The man replies from below. "You must be in Management."
"Yes, but how…?"
"Because you don't know where you are or where you're going, you're no worse off for having met me… but now it's all my fault!"
Humour helps me keep things in perspective
. I hope it helps you, too.
