Considering how much more time kids/teens spend on the computer than driving, I think this answer is out dated. I remember a study the British version of the Consumer Protection Agency did. They looked at the top 25 (I'm making up the specifics for discussions sake) new phrases/searches among teenagers that year. Then they looked at the site names which were very similar which were registered that year. Over 25% of them were porn. (Two examples were Pokemon and My Little Plny...) [ Reply | More ]

I wouldnt say youre stupid, but I would work on getting db to nap on his own at that age. We are just breaking 6.5 mo ds out of his being carried around for naps habit, and its SO MUCH better when he just goes down for a nap and sleeps on his own. the quality and length of naps are better. life is better. worth a few tears [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Ds took the SB last fall (98) the ERBs early winter (81, ugh!) -- we were applying to PK and then found out we didn't need them -- and the Olsat late winter (94). He's taking the ERB again this summer to apply to K. Predict what he'll get. 10 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

no point in predicting, but this is a great example of why testing kids this age is such a crap shoot. [ Reply | More ]

The ERB score for preK was meaningless. I think that you can expect something more in line with the SB and OLSAT scores. He is older and obviously has some test taking experience now. Don't worry, it will be fine. I predict he will get a high 90s score on the ERB. [ Reply | More ]

probably in the 90s. The 81 was probably a bad test day. FWIW, the SB is the best indicator of later school success. GL. [ Reply | More ]

That's about what I was hoping for but I didn't want to feel like I was being crazy. Thanks for supporting my theories. Now we just have to hope for an okay day. And an okay tester. I hate this process! [ Reply | More ]

Did your child bomb one particular part of the ERB (e.g performance?) My child did pretty bad on performance when he was a young 4 and did great on it as an old 4 and that made a big difference between a good ERB score and a great one [ Reply | More ]

Mid-90s, at least. Good luck. My guess was the ERB was a fluke - he had a bad day. [ Reply | More ]
