Comment Kudos for starting with zero! (Score 0) 295

Counting should be consistent with the number line. The number line starts at zero: Why confuse the kids by starting at 1 in Kindergarten? Only to have to teach them zero the next year when you start showing them number lines? I'm teaching my daughter to always start with zero.

It would be one thing if a tablet was capable of replacing a child's textbooks, but they aren't, so what's the point? It's not a magic device, it requires this thing called software. The tablet in and of itself is better suited for wasting time on the interwebs and playing 'touch' games. These ijits bought fragile paper weights... Stupid sexy tablets!
