Ice skating is an interesting way to see how people deal with challenges, and it can be fun. Bike riding, going to free museum nights and/or visiting MET East Side and Cloisters. Video games are a backup. There is always theater, think there is a teen comedy club here in town. Unfortunately for a teen, all activities involve shelling out some dough. But it's the same for adults so it's an exercise in seeing how the other party handles finances. One of the big advantages of dating as a teen is to learn about other people's character (and through that experience, one's own core character) and the best ways is to engage in such activities.

np: It's insane, but yes, Reveal (I think) did a podcast about this that I happened to listen to. It is based on faulty "studies" and basically says that if one parent is complaining too much and trying to limit the others visitation it's "parental alienation" and the complaining parent should be cut off from the child entirely. It's insane, and parents of both sexes can get screwed. Much is left to the judge's discretion so this isn't always the outcome if the judge is reasonable, but if you have a fanatical judge who decides they don't like you, this can happen.

Agree. I went on an eharmony date with a cop once. He downed shots the entire date until he was falling over and called me a b**ch when i tried to stop him from driving home from Nyc to NJ. [ Reply | More ]

Cops have the highest rates of violence at home than any other profession. Maybe some is job stress but it's also likely who is attracted to the job in the first place. [ Reply | More ]

np: Honestly, I thought of this. It attracts authoritarian personalities to begin with, and then they get stressed out, start drinking heavily, feel "disrespected" and all of these traits are magnified. (I'm NOT saying all cops would do this, of course.) I also wonder if the kids would have been taken if he weren't on the NYPD - they rely heavily on connections to circumvent rules and maybe at some level case workers didn't believe a police officer could be this abusive to his kid.

I’m not trying to make this into a race thing BUT this is the closest I’ve heard (presumably) white people come to admitting that cops have issues. Whenever they kill or abuse people they are given excessive deference and spoken of as if they should always be believed and that is simply untrue. The profession attracts people with tendencies to bully the vulnerable. This culture thin blue line culture is fine until suddenly it’s not. You want to know why CPS, the judge and other police did nothing? It’s the same reason they do nothing in any cases of policy brutality. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Would you rather have your DC’s HS GPA 3 at 3.8 but showing a decline with junior year being the worst academic year or a steady improvement with junior year being best with an overall 3.6 gpa? 10 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I'd probably want the higher overall GPA. The kid with the 3.6 is going to get automatically screened out due to not hitting minimum GPA before they can look and see a trend. [ Reply | More ]

Improvement i think is better. This was me in college. Partied like crazy freshman first semester with straight Cs. I snapped out if and by first semester sophmore year had straight As for the rest of college. My gpa never recovered even though I had a 4.0 for three years. It knocked me out of Harvard and Yale law however I was accepted to the 8 other top ten law schools. [ Reply | More ]

I would pick higher overall GPA. Junior year is tough--classes are challenging (sciences like physics or chemistry; calc; APs; etc.)and the work load/pressure is intense. I think a college could see a slight dip in grades and write it off as a challenging year (i.e., going from mostly A/A- to A-/B+, perhaps with a B thrown in, which is basically the difference between a 3.8 and a 3.6). A 3.8 will open more doors. [ Reply | More ]
