NP I know some kids who went to Middle College in San Mateo. Your dd is right. Dual enrollment =/= Middle College. It is a cohort of kids who go through together and they have a ton of support. Dual enrollment is never as smooth as it could be just because of the different calendars. If she is over the stuff that is unique to her high school then no reason to not go to Middle College. I know someone applying now for next year's class. I know 4 other kids (now graduated) who went to Middle College. I kind of wish I still lived there because I think it would be good for my kid.

OP: Perhaps, but I'm kind of desperate. This premenopausal stuff is giving me the heaviest periods of my life. I'm changing super tampons like every hour/other hour. Sorry for the TMI. I just need another solve. Diva cup was just super hard to get situated properly and then suctioned in and was hard to take out. This thing feels like maybe it'll just shove in almost like a tampon, but lower and hopefully be easier to remove. I can check back next month and let you know if it was all for naught. But I'm gonna at least try. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Could you offer some relationship advice? I’ve been with my boyfriend for about 1.5 years. He believes talking about problems in a relationship is the worst thing you can do for the relationship because “mature adults handle their own problems and don’t burden their loved ones.” I think communication is important, so I will try to gently and kindly bring up an issue when I have something on my mind. He, however, reacts very poorly. He yells, resorts to insults, says he hates our relationship, calls me names, etc. He is set off by even the smallest conversation about a relationship issue. He always calms down and is rational, but today I sat him down and said I was tired of being disrespected and only loved when I’m providing him with happiness. I said he needs to show me he’s working earnestly on his patience and needs to allow me to communicate my needs. His response was that he’s not a patients person, and that’s just part of his personality. He said he can’t change his personality and if he doesn’t want to be snapped at, I should follow his No Talking About Problems procedure. He tells me I need to love him for who he is and stop trying to change him. I’m annoyed and confused. How can someone view a total lack of patience as a personality trait? Since when is communicating boundaries and demanding better behavior from a partner asking them to compromise themselves? 61 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I’m a DH, and I’ll take it a step further. I talk to my wife, and not only isn’t it a problem, it created the strong foundation of our bond. Most of the early talks were easy, but the difficult ones were the most important. Learning what made each other tick, what we liked, and what we couldn’t stand for made the ensuing years so much better. It allowed me to adjust behaviors that were problematic, and my DW has been able to do the same, and it showed us both that we were willing to listen and work for each other. In short: Run.

All in one, you find none. Why are you pushing him to give you support he has clearly articulated he does not want to give? The real solution is not to need so much caretaking, I’m afraid. Beyond that it sounds like you are not a match, but for future, I would recommend you explore this perceived need. We can’t expect our partners to be our emotional full-time caretakers.

in NYC it feels inevitable. Who wants to be on a packed subway car when people who arent showing symptoms can be contageous. As soon as there is 1 case confirmed, there is more than 1 person who has it. I think people will start working from home as soon as that happens, and the sooner the better. [ Reply | More ]

This but if you have extra time in your IEP you get extra time or whatever your accommodations are. The test is on a different day for kids who have accommodations, like extra time or quiet room. The SHS will not know your DD has any IEP until after they are accepted. I know quite a few kids who've done very well with IEP at SHS. You may need to be an extra support in setting every thing up.

Are you fancy or can you take a rental building with no doorman, small gym, etc.? I think you should stay in downtown brooklyn/fort greene area so you're near the B train for the private school commute. But I also think you should go to PS 29 and then apply to other local publics/charters that are K-8 or K-12. You can apply to Community Roots or Brooklyn Prospect Charter and see what happens in the next few years. I have a few friends who got into CR off waitlist and one who got into BPC. One friend lives in The Andrea. It's not fancy, but it's fine. 2/2's go for $3500 I believe. [ Reply | More ]

I don't think you can afford private. If you go further out in BK, you'll save $1K on rent - that's 12K a month. And if it's pretty far out, you'll increase your spending on cabs. That doesn't equate to $50K a year savings to help with private school. Do public. [ Reply | More ]

It really means nothing. You can’t prepare for something with so much uncertainty. I think it’s mostly directed toward medical industry that they may want to stockpile supplies and be flexible with staffing. And so the govt can say they warned people. But for average folks? Just go on living your life. [ Reply | More ]

More hand washing, hand sanitizing, avoiding public places or school/work if you have a fever. Basically it will be like a bad flu going around, except with a 1% mortality rate instead of 0.1% mortality rate for most bad flu seasons. Elderly, infants and sick have to be especially careful.

A couple weeks ago, I stockpiled a couple of weeks of dry food that we would eat anyway. I didn't do any kind of three month prep. I also got soap, toilet paper. We've been using some of the dry goods and I should probably replace. I also got a lot of soap. [ Reply | More ]

Do not book holidays that you cannot cancel, be ready to self isolate at home for 2 weeks, plan for childcare/household help in case you are in intensive care, update your will, etc, etc. Even if the risk is very low, young and fit people still might die from it. [ Reply | More ]

+1. I grew up there. If you want to be in the village, there are a few hotels there and you can walk around to a lot of restaurants and shops. You can also stay in the Shores. Two hotels down there. One is a beach and tennis club (kind of old school). The other is the LJ Shores Inn right on the beach. There's a strip down there with a few restaurants and shops . But please remember - the water is cold. It's not like going to Miami or the Caribbean. [ Reply | More ]
