concerning. but if you all are offended by this site i think you take your
role as a teacher too seriously and don't give children the benefit of the
doubt. let the children have space to get out of their role and just have a
sense of humor."

nrose and others that thought nic.com game was funny.
I can;t believe Nic.com created this horrible game. I have written them in
regards. I feel that
It is the role of the teacher to teach respect for oneself and others. This
Nick site
teaches disrespect - look what the Taliban did to the Buddhas - did that make
you
laugh??? Children think the internet is the last word in what is going on -
this
site is not humorous - it teaches to trash fine art - what next - their
school, their
neighborhood - your home??? Brats aren;t born they are encouraged to be so
by this type of "humour".by other kids, childish adults, TV and now the
internet.

Roberta Elementary Art Educator and proud of it.
