So ….. is hoodwinking our kids into believing that the tooth fairy is real the right kind of thing to do? Or should we instead be helping them learn to distinguish fantasy from reality?
Never thought about it?
I hadn’t either – not until I listened to Neil deGrasse Tyson talking about the tooth fairy on the The Late Late Show with James Corden.
Imagine how easily we could apply this kind of logic to so much of what we teach our students!
It’s a little mind-boggling – no?!
