Another dot in the blogosphere?

Little talent?

Posted on: April 3, 2021

I spotted this sign above a childcare centre.

Its owners probably mean to say that it helps develop the aptitudes of young children. But that is not all the sign means.

Another interpretation is that the centre is for kids low in flair or gifts. There is nothing wrong with that if they are truly providing a humble social service, but that is just how the meaning of language is negotiated.

My point is that you should get a second opinion on even the most innocuous of things. A different perspective might make all the difference in how you come across to others or how you implement an intervention.
