It seems like everyday there is a news article explaining some new research, or treatments and therapies for disorders. When I first saw this one, I thought ,”OH NO! A new disorder, what now?” Usually, I would have skipped over it, but it was from The Onion, and I like the way they spin their “reporting”.
So my conclusion after reading about Youthful Tendency Disorder is this: All of my children, even the 21 year old, have several symptoms of this condition. I notice it most often during our homeschooling days, especially when it’s nice outside, or time for a grammar lesson, or after they have read an exciting story. It’s probably in their genes, for both my husband and I have struggled with Youthful Tendency Disorder for years. Until this article informed us, I did not realize just what is was that we have been “suffering” from.
I’m hoping that a cure for this “disorder” is never discovered!
Here’s the link so you may investigate this unusual disorder for yourself, and I hope you and your family have it also! http://www.theonion.com/articles/more-us-children-being-diagnosed-with-youthful-ten,248/
