I'm the mom who posted above, and thank you for this. I know when he says this about his skin it's just because he wants to be like his friends. It's not carrying any negative or positive connotations yet, the skin color issue, but it breaks my heart that he sees such an obvious difference. I go out of my way to tell him every day how beautiful he is -- each and every part of him -- but I will never put him in this situation again. However much I hate to say it though, it is very hard to find an academically strong, positive, school with a diverse population. The ultimate UMC black conundrum I suppose, LOL. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Rather than fighting over how many "open" seats exist at NEST, we should all be rallying behind the idea of limiting class size for everyone. LL takes 28, and Anderson 25 for K and 28 for first. Even though the kids are bright, this cannot be good. DOE needs to cap around 20-22 for the early years. parents need to stop fighting each other about the available spots, and start a movement to improve quality of education everywhere. Class size is a good place to start. 46 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

np: I don't believe that these class sizes are too large. I went to public school with 35+ in elementary school classes and one teacher. I got into a great HS (private) and then had successful college and business careers. The social aspects of small classes are way too limiting and I think, more harmful, than having these mid-size classes especially when the population is more homogeneous and has better focus, as well as support at home. That translates as one of the most important classroom factors - motivated students. Especially with only 2 classes on a grade, smaller class sizes would make the school too incestuous for a K-8.

It never crossed my mind to hire a tutor for the Olsat. They send a practice test. After we received it, we understood the nature of the test and played some games with our dc that were similar in nature. Didn't spend more than about 2 hours total thinking about the whole issue from beginning to end, plus the 45 minutes for the actual test. dc scored 99 and is at citywide. [ Reply | More ]

I posted this - I think that the letter was for both of them to go there. They had not yet signed it (must not have been the summer yet), but when they were ready to they were requested the wording for just the son and they said NO - it was a package deal. I think that that is terrible. I sort of side with the parents - I think CGPS should have said OK and not felt that they get both or none. That poor boy is an individual, not just an appendage of his sister!!! [ Reply | More ]

I understand but not everyone can be everything we "need". Sounds like you are the caregiver in your relationship with her. Maybe she doesn't know how to help you, and yes I'm sure it makes her feel insecure. I guess you should weigh the pros/cons of this friendship. What does she give to you? What do you get out of it?

i see this happen a lot. i think part of the problem is that you viewed it as being there for her when she needed it. but she views you as her support. she doesn't see the relationship as a give/take. [ Reply | More ]

only used sippy cups with dc #1 who wouldn't take a bottle -- gave him bm in a sippy starting at about 5 months old. then never used sippy cups after any of them were about 14 or 15 months old. [ Reply | More ]

yes, the urge to have a biological child is very strong but there are so many babies out there in need of a loving home. Not to make light of it, but perhaps this is a blessing in disguise? Adoption is a beautiful thing. Watch "adoption stories" on TLC and you'll cry your eyes out. Perhaps consider it??? [ Reply | More ]
