Youthful Tendency Disorder

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/
