    Comments: You do a great job, it's pretty obvious why you made it to the finals.
    You're a clear and concise with great word economy.
    You can benefit from spending more time in the debate on the impact level and explaining to the judge on which arguments they should vote.
    Well done! You absolutely deserve to be in the finals.
    You're a great story teller and you get listeners invested in your arguments.
    You can work on prioritizing which arguments you think are the strongest in the debate, and spending extra time trying to explain why those impacts are the biggest to the judge.

    The decision is for the Proposition: Tabby Byron

    Reason for Decision:

    This round comes down to the question of what is the best way to get kids sleep. I don't think Sohum answers the argument that, while parents may guide a kid's natural rhythm, they can't know exactly how much sleep each child needs. And the McDowell evidence suggests that parents have been getting it wrong all these years that they've been the ones setting the bedtimes and they've been putting kids to bed to early. The Ferber evidence impacts this out.
    Sohum makes some headway on the impact calculus that being over tired is a worse impact, but there is not much comparison between that impact and the ones that Tabby's winning.
    There is also at least some benefit to bodily autonomy as it is linked to academic success. Even though Sohum does some work mitigating the impact, it is still something to weigh in favor of the proposition.
