PLEASE NOTE: The Reality TV World Message Boards are filled with desperate attention-seekers pretending to be one big happy PG/PG13-rated family. Don't be fooled. Trying to get everyone to agree with you is like herding cats, but intolerance for other viewpoints is NOT welcome and respect for other posters IS required at all times. Jump in and play, and you'll soon find out how easy it is to fit in, but save your drama for your mama. All members are encouraged to read the complete guidelines. As entertainment critic Roger Ebert once said, "If you disagree with something I write, tell me so, argue with me, correct me--but don't tell me to shut up. That's not the American way."

15. "RE: Gold Star is too ambiguous"
Not only do I agree with what Sherps said, but I would think that one of the major learning experiences happening here is the decision-making process, as in how to make good decisions when the situation is subjective. I think it's good the producers didn't put too many rules for the gold star in place. Most of life's decisions are subjective. Those who are most successful in life make the best decisions in such situations. This is a part of education that, IMHO, is completely lacking in our whole NCLB educational environment and the helicopter parenting phenomenon. I'm happy to see kids getting the opportunity to risk and to fail, to struggle and to succeed.

We need kids to get more of these types of creative decision-making experiences, not make it ever more easy for them to not take responsibility.


"And now the whole nation -- pulpit and all -- will take up the war-cry, and shout itself hoarse, and mob any honest man who ventures to open his mouth; and presently such mouths will cease to open. Next the statesmen will invent cheap lies, putting the blame upon the nation that is attacked, and every man will be glad of those conscience-soothing falsities, and will diligently study them, and refuse to examine any refutations of them; and thus he will by and by convince himself that the war is just, and will thank God for the better sleep he enjoys after this process of grotesque self-deception." Mark Twain
