thanks for the video that was really interesting!
I hope down the road whenever I saw a meddlesome, mischievous and hazardous kid, act like a caring adult and try to redirect the annoyance and help them cultivate their raw and unrefined talent to be successful at future
(when there was a time for them to consider a career )
maybe they have the potential to be an inventor with lots of patents or someone who saves countless lives.
honestly, when I was a kid myself I was a class clown but most of my teachers didn't lose their cool while a few of them were pestered. hopefully, I never saw my family exasperated, they understood that I am opinionated and argumentative but before all that just an immature and sophomoric kid who might be a genius!

Thanks guys. Great work!
