Bedtime, kids!

Go to sleep! Goodnight! (Are they safely away from the computer? Okay, check out this study by Indiana University researchers, which purports to show that parenting drops one's IQ more than a few points....Now how are we to think about this? I asked a neuropsychiatrist friend about it, and he e-mailed me, "Beats me! Maybe before I had my three kids, I would have had the intelligence to figure it out!")

I don't know....do you think this story is a spoof? I've never heard a researcher use the words "dumb as a box of rocks" about a child, at least not to a journalist.....

Yes, it is a hoax. The Kinsey Institute has a disclaimer on their website. I'm probably the last person to find out about this.
