Lessons on Middle Schoolers

I love talking to parents of middle school students. The middle school years are a special challenge to students and their parents.

Listen to this great piece from This American Life, "Act 1: Error at First Base" where Mike Birbiglia does a stand-up routine describing his first kiss in seventh grade and all of the many difficulties kids have at that age around getting to know one another. (Be sure to advance to Act 1)

Good post. Middle school is one of the best times to be a kid in general. As far as learning goes, middle schoolers are definitely challenging students, but at least they are energetic.
