My kids come home from school and want help with their homework. "Sure," I say... until I realize it's CURSIVE! So I say what every good parent tells their children struggling in school: "Don't worry, you're never going to use that."

Seriously, handwriting is almost obsolete, why learn a variation of handwriting that is hard to write, hard to learn and hard to read?

A teacher called into the show and said kids need to learn cursive so they can write and read signatures. But most people I know use the "doctor" signature anyway -- you know, a first letter and then a squiggle.
