Extreme Examples of "Sink-or-Swim" Parenting

Most every parent wants to teach their kid to be self sufficient, but there's a lot of disagreement on how to get there. Some parents opt for the "tell my child to tie their shoes without telling them how" approach and needless to say, there are mixed results. Making your kid try something and fail at it is a way to make them learn, but most parents would agree it's usually better to set them up with situations where failure doesn't mean death.

Twitter Thread: How Taylor Swift Cut Out Her Predatory Label

Whether you're a fan of Taylor Swift's music or not, it's interesting to learn about the long, long history of musicians signing horrible deals early in their careers and getting completely shafted later on when it comes to the rights of their own music. It's crazy to think that there are recording artists today don't own their own music, like we're still living in some old-timey Motown story of forgotten legends and cartoonishly evil businessmen. @ThatsMauvelous details the weird legal stunts Swift had to pull to get the rights to her music back from her old label.

Karen Customer Insists On Being Rude, Waitress Surprises Karen With Family Connection

Let this grueling tale of an entitled customer who makes a person working a customer service job's life a nightmare be a lesson to the rest of the world. Just don't be rude to people.

While it is a teacher's responsibility to know things, they're still human and are capable of getting those things wrong. It's when a teacher says something wrong and doesn't own up to it when things get weird. What's the value in lying to kids just so that you can maintain a false sense of authority?
