Not derogatory to the kids at all, I just want to find out what fluff they put into the curriculum to keep these poor kids so busy. I am not looking forward to this and would not say anything different in your shoes. Just want to know if there are alternatives to the Selective MS/HS for families with no funds for private schools. We are all trying to get info to make decisions for our families. My guess is they start these subjects too late and then try to cram everything into the last year or two, instead of starting gradually in low MS or even late elementary, because kids as young as 12 are absolutely capable to start the basics of science and algebra.

^^You give them a little bit early on, and then you add more and then kids in HS are not overwhelmed. That's my point. Why wait till 9th grade?

This is why you don't teach your kids words like "penis", "vagina", etc., until they're old enough to use them responsibly. [ Reply | More ]

Okay, well a teenage boy is probably much less likely to shout those words at inappropriate times and places than a clueless 2.5-year-old boy. [ Reply | More ]

I disagree. Proper body part names are much better than cutesy (or just downright weird) nicknames. [ Reply | More ]

There's a third option: saying "phallus" instead of "penis", "posterior" instead of "butt", "cunt" instead of vagina, etc. [ Reply | More ]

What do you mean by help? Quotas - sure, against them as they fall in the broad category of Asians. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Confession: Our DD is a C student. She works to the best of her ability. She wants to be a pastry chef. We're fine with it. Anyone else out there in a similar situation? 20 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

No. Had she been presented with more challenging schooling, she may have turned out differently. [ Reply | More ]

OP: She does her best in an appropriate school. She's just very good visually and manually, but not academic. [ Reply | More ]

I had a friend like your DD in high school who was not strong academically but was good manually and had a little side business making crafty hair pieces for other girls in school. Now 15 years later she has an etsy business that has hundreds of reviews and her hairbows are a big hit. She seems to enjoy crafting them and posts pictures of her bows on facebook all the time. She's married to a teacher husband and has two kids and a nice life. They aren't rich, and are lower middle class income wise and live in a low cost of living area, but they seem very happy. One of the happiest families I know actually. I think not going to college was actually a good step for her because then she doesn't need to worry about student loans and having debt. She married at 22 and had her first kid at 23 and second at 25 so she was a young mom. Most of our peers didn't marry until around 30 and most don't even have kids yet at 32. I find it fascinating to watch her life on facebook since it deviates so much from what I usually see, but honestly she does seem very truly happy with her more simply living life. [ Reply | More ]

We toured that. Would they take a C student? She is taking teen pastry camp this summer at Kendall College (a mid-tier culinary program in Chicago.) She has a dog pupcake business. Her grades aren't stellar, though. [ Reply | More ]

Why not pursue the pupcake business after high school and focus on growing the client base and expanding marketing and learning basic bookkeeping. Why is tertiary education necessary if academics aren't her strong suit? [ Reply | More ]

You should watch the comedy show Unbreakable. It's really cute and the main character aspires to be a crossing guard. It's very witty and funny. [ Reply | More ]

I have a friend with a kindergarten DS who is autistic. He loves trash and garbage trucks and gets up every morning to watch the garbage truck collect the trash. He tells everyone he wants to be a garbage man when he grows up and collect trash. I think it's adorable. We need garbage workers so isn't nice that there are actually people who LOVE garbage out there and would be so happy to have that job? [ Reply | More ]
