[ - ] I have an incoming 6th grader ds- waiting for MS results. He's judged his MS picks on schools that have the sports he wants to play. He's into football but has never played it. I, of course, ranked the middle schools according to those that I think he would thrive in. He wants to be a professional football player. Is this dream going to petter out by 7th-8th grade when he realizes that he can't play football in NYC (or be a professional)? Please don't laugh- He's about a year or two behind emotionally for his age. 7 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Yes, it could. But right now our job as parents is to support our kids' dreams. For all we know your ds may become a sports commentator on CBS or write a sports column in a newspaper. My dh was into learning statistics about baseball and got very good in math. Please don't worry about what an 11yo is saying right now. His interest will keep him going to school and enjoying life.

Football is a tough, high-impact sport. You will either excel early on or you'll quickly find out it's not worth getting beat up in practice just to watch the first team play on game days (while you stand on the sidelines in the cold for a few hours). I wouldn't worry too hard about it. It will sort itself out. [ Reply | More ]

2.4 million healthy kittens are euthanized each year. Let that sink in. If you really want a purebred cat, find a shelter that has one for adoption. That way you can make room for a cat or kitten that would have to be killed because there simply isn't enough space. If that isn't enough of an argument, shelters will vaccinate, spay/neuter, test for FIV, and microchip for a small adoption fee. [ Reply | More ]

If there were millions of children waiting for adoption yes. And likely with overturn of Roe vs. Wade your point may in fact have some validity.

Thank you so much. And if we want to do this legitimately, we should be at the new place at least until the start of school? Or I guess another way of thinking of this, is what happens if people move right after applications are turned in? Or people avoid doing that? thanks. [ Reply | More ]

We didn't rank Stuy at all but Nest was in the list. Stuy kids on the tour just seemed too competitive. All they could say they liked about it was that it was the best, had the highest scores, was hardest to get into. maybe we just got bad tour guides but we did go twice and got the same vibe. Nest seemed nurturing due to the small size. Bit, did to the small size, there are many fewer clubs and sports. The commute to Nest is a big problem for us. [ Reply | More ]

I think you had a bad tour guide. Or maybe I had a really good one? Our guide was a drama club girl who was really into Spanish literature. She was funny and smart and energetic. She was definitely proud of her school and had a lot of school spirit, but she didn’t come across as competitive or obsessed with being “the best.” She seemed like a normal, enthusiastic student who was also very knowledgeable about all aspects of the school.

Ok here is my example from my dc. At Stuy tour, we asked how much HW. Student said, hmmm maybe 5-6 hrs. No distinction made btwn course load or year. Does everyone always no matter what have that much hw? Certainly was a deal killer for my dc. While at Bx Sci and Bklyn Tech the answer to that question always was an "it varies" depending on courses, year, also the very good response of "how you manage your time." Also the Stuy kid volunteered that: "hey, if you think your the best student in your math class and you come here, remember you will be with everyone who was the best student in their math class..." So that is the kind of thing we encountered from our non-fun loving Stuy tour guide. BT guide was very personable and clearly more than someone who was "best" math student in his ms class and someone who did 5-6 hrs hw a night. Also BS kids were personable though they didn't lead tours per se. T/hat was my opinion, and dc's impression, and I am not OP [ Reply | More ]

Why surprised? If you were at a relatively small school for elementary years, AND middle school years, why NOT switch to the more centrally located also downtown more prestigious larger school? Seems like a no brainer thing to do. Certainly to test for it. Why is that hard to believe? They ware with the SAME people - the same - what 100 people ??? - for 8 long years already. Makes sense to expand their pool. WHO WOULDN'T? And I bet if Stuy were on UES next to HCHS then you'd see the same phenomenon there - only it is harder to see because HCHS actually expands in grade 7 so it's a new kettle of fish for kids who were there since K.

My mom was in similar situation and decided to stay. It got to her after a while. Now she's just en empty shell. The thing is if the mother is constantly tiptoeing around the father, kids end up being neglected one way or another, in a subtle way. One of the kids may think that it's her/his duty to look after their mom, maybe even try to fix things. In the case of my mother, that child was me. Also, my mom used her job as a way to escape the constant belittling and reproaches and expectations from my dad. At least there she was in charge, respected, etc, but she tended to come home late. Us the kids had been on our own for several hours by then after nanny/helper had left. My dad was around but paying no attention to us, smoking, drinking beer, reading the newspaper. When my mom retired, all hell broke lose for her, he was waiting for her to become basically "the help". So, so, sad. [ Reply | More ]

Her divorce is pretty funny, seeing as she spent TONS of money and time on prepping for her stupid wedding. https://www.reddit.com/r/blogsnark/comments/abyyia/emily_weiss_divorced/ [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Wwyd? My daughter was dx with autism at age 3. She had an IEP and received services plus we did private speech, other, pt and aba. She is 6 and is in mainstream classroom in a very good school who was never told of her dx since they don't like iep kids. Tomorrow I have an IEP meeting and am debating to say she was dx or not. I have had other IEP meetings and she gets glowing praise from her teachers. I'm just afraid she will need help later on and she won't receive...I'm sorry for the bad writing. 4 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Are you on any parents of children with autism facebook support groups? You need advice about your specific school district. Hiding a dx from a school district is not a common path to take but maybe you live in a weird place. As far as I know, at any time in the future you can always get a 504 for her for autism because she has a dx. You may need recent documentation from a doctor. [ Reply | More ]

I guess I'm confused. You say that the school doesn't like IEP kids. But it sounds like she already has an IEP. So why not be forthcoming? [ Reply | More ]
