However, it does come at a high cost, often a tendency to get out of challenging life situations in general. Some children tell me that all they hear after a while of listening to a teacher, especially a “wordy” one, is “blah-blah-blah.” Another common response is that certain basic knowledge was either never taught to them (grammar being one area) or without them being present. These gaps add to the confusion in later years.
