I thought that this TedX talk was great. While focused on children in the criminal justice system, there are some excellent points in regards to the maturity vs intelligence curves of the youth that we lead:

Agreed. Thank you Horizon.
Hopefully the yawning guy in the audience doesn't have kids.

:p  I saw that too and the first thing I thought of where's a good editor when you need one? 

 

Then again maybe he has 7 teenagers at home and this is nothing new for him.....

There's a reason why I don't always answer the phone, doorbell or comments on forums.  :)

I noticed Yawning Guy too. He didn't look old enough to have kids, to me. In fact, I was kind of wondering who the audience was. Without going back and watching it again, my impression is that a lot of them seemed to college student age or so, including Yawning Guy. Maybe he was up late the night before, partying and/or studying.

The audience is a distraction, though. What the speaker was saying was interesting.
