Learning is Experiential*

The little boy was caught swearing by his teacher.

"Jeffrey Alan!" she said, "you shouldn't use that kind of language. Where did you hear it?"

"My daddy said it," he responded.

"Well, that doesn't matter," she explained, "you don't know what it means."

"I do, too," Jeffrey corrected. "It means the car won't start."
