Phew
If you can fill the unforgiving minute,
With sixty seconds worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And - which is more - you'll be a man my son.

Jaeger, that absolutely, positively was the REAL Goofy who high-fived you! Everything in Disney is real. :D

Tamar, I see where you're heading with the discussion, but I really think you're over-thinking it. There are too many variables and kids are all so different. There isn't going to be one answer.
