    Have you noticed that the best things in life are not things? Relationships with the people whom I love are the highlight of my life. I chose the Son Rise program because of it’s focuses on relationships. I found that by making relationships the primary focus of my Son Rise program that my son actually learnt all the other stuff anyway without my need to create lessons to teach it. You can go through life without being able to tie shoelaces – buy slipons, but who wants to go through life alone?

    Well, I liked the fun approach, because I recognize that human values like friendship vs. “fulfilling tasks” sounds like “full humanity” vs “adapting” AKA “blend in”, and so “blend in” aka “slave consciousness” gets the public funds, and that is very serious and BIG. But if you put the story like that… don’t you think, you program your own limitation into that?
    To me it still sounds like too little self-irony in the comedy. I would like more “inclusiveness” vs “exclusive” + “elite”.
