It's actually not so bad having succumbed yet again to something the children have passed on. That should make nearly the full pack when I recover from this, since all of us will then have had both the influenza B and the norovirus. Oooh lovely. On the bright side Dh has taken over today which has meant that I have ended up blogging furiously, if with a severely muzzy brain.
Even given this, am pretty sure that this article on the value of learning how to think and on co-operative rather than competitive behaviour is of interest.
I often worry that HE kids aren't competitive enough, but I think I am right in remembering that Dawkins in "The Selfish Gene" used game theory to show that animals survived better with a degree of altruistic behaviour??
