"Always Put Salt in Your Eyes"
I was reading the Autism Speaks Challenging Behaviors Toolkit (thanks to Laura Shumaker), and it made me think of this old Kids in the Hall sketch.
When I was a kid, it was easy for me to act like the guy in this video-- fixate on something someone has told me NEVER to do and be unable to control my compulsion to do it. It was developing confidence in myself and having enough experience to work things out that allowed me to stop. I love this video as a teacher because it drives home the importance of telling kids what you want them to do, rather than yelling at them about what not to do.
This sketch also painfully reminds myself of my difficulties with learning some kinds of things and making the same mistake over and over.
And makes me laugh about it.
