Life Lessons from Saved by the Bell

The discussion of limiting screen time for kids has quickly become a hot topics amongst parents and teachers. I can easily argue both sides of the debate, but usually end with one statement: I watched TV all the time, and I turned out just fine. Let's take a closer look at how well I turned out by examining all of the wonderful life lessons I learned from watching, rewatching, and eventually memorizing every episode of Saved by the Bell.

LESSON 1
If you make a T with you hands and say, "Time out," everything freezes and no one can hear what you are saying. This works especially well during faculty meetings when you simply cannot keep those thoughts to yourself anymore. Go ahead…give it a try!

LESSON 2
Wearing thick-rimmed glasses makes you a nerd. Hipsters, take note.
(I'd like to dedicate this lesson to my 20-year-old brother.)

LESSON 3
Need extra money? Host a garage sale and easily pay off all of your credit card debt. 

LESSON 4
Don't hire high school boys to babysit.

LESSON 5
Changing diapers does not come naturally to males. It takes my husband at least 30 minutes to change one diaper. (He may be doing that on purpose.)

LESSON 6

Disguises always work…even if they are horrible and the person you are trying to fool knows you extremely well.

LESSON 7
Disguises work especially well when trying to use a fake ID. (I tried this lesson out in college.)

LESSON 8
On Senior Skip Day, you should go to the beach and then eat at the Max.

LESSON 9
Talking on the phone makes you look cool…no matter which phone model you have.

LESSON 10

The principal just wants to be your friend.

LESSON 11
A class project could potentially turn into a money-making business. Just think what could have happened if Buddy Band had been on Shark Tank!

LESSON 12
Caffeine is a drug…that made induce singing.

LESSON 13
The underdog always wins…usually because someone bigger comes along to save him.

LESSON 14
Home Economics is the most fun class in the world…except at my school.

LESSON 15
Driving golf carts through the school halls is the best way to learn how to drive.

LESSON 16
Lockers were specifically designed to hold an average-sized person.

LESSON 17
Substitute teachers are supposed to be cool. (No pressure!)

LESSON 18
The star athlete is most likely a closeted ballerina.

LESSON 19
Teachers are weird!

LESSON 20
School is always fun!

LESSON 21
Finally, it is totally okay to dress your two-year-old up like a sitcom character who is no longer relevant…just to be funny.
