Breast milk and, along with it, breastfeeding is a regular cause of certain amounts of controversy and consternation in what passes for Western society these days. Some figured this could be solved through modifying the curriculum of our schools.
This is straight from Scotland. Students in a Third Year(S3) Biology class were taking their mid-term exam. The last question was, ‘Name seven advantages of Mother’s Milk’. The question was worth 70 points or none at all.
One student, in particular, was hard put to think of seven advantages. However, he wrote:
1) It is the perfect formula for the child.
2) It provides immunity against several diseases.
3) It is always the right temperature.
4) It is inexpensive.
5) It bonds the child to the mother, and vice versa.
6) It is always available as needed.
And then the student was stuck.
Finally, in desperation, just before the bell rang indicating the end of the test, he wrote:
7) It comes in two attractive containers and it’s high enough off the ground where the cat can’t get it.
He got an A+.
😆 I’m not sure that was the original lesson plan, but damn well done!
