I couldn’t agree more with his husband. You have to do what u have to do. 30k is far too much for a preschool. Get the free one even if they are a lil’bit nazi on the side.
The baby is not even walking . You could tie it to a puppy for 4-6 hours a day and it would turn out fine.
Is there even any evidence that preschool does anything? Don’t they all even out in middle school?
No, no they really don’t. It’s proven that a pre-K education makes kids more socially prepared for Kindergarten, as well as giving them a jump start on the alphabet and numbers. Many preschoolers, especially if they’re read to by parents and teachers, are usually reading by the time they get into Kindergarten, sometimes even far surpassing the curriculum set for them in the first few grades.
Wow. I thought everybody could read by kindergarden.
Ourorboros – not everyone, but like Opal Eyes said Pre-K does make some difference in the social skills of small children. Graduation ceremonies at every level of school is, however, going seriously overboard, IMO.
As for reading, some of us learned to read in self defense. If we wanted a bed-time story, we usually had to read it ourselves. Mom usually fell asleep before the end of the first page, leaving us to finish the book. There were 3 of us kids when I was a pre-k, and we were something of a handful (preschool didn’t exist in small town SoDak in the 60s). We were still bouncing off the walls at 8PM and Mom was exhausted. :)
And I agree with the husband and sliderunner, you can get alot of psychological help for 30 grand a year. Send the kid to the wizard school.
It is also not necessarily true that reading by kindergarten makes you a good reader. I never really learned until second grade. However I read more books now than anyone else I know. It also depends on interest. I think my late start caused me to be more interested in reading.
Being able to read at a young age is great for self confidence and parental sanity (you can keep yourself busy for half an hour without major help). What sucks sometimes is getting to school and finding nobody else expects you to be able to read. Try hitting middle school and having a teacher accuse you of lying because you said you finished the book of the MONTH inside of an hour.
I can understand not expecting every student to be an avid reader, but giving an *advanced* 7th grade English class a book that’s only 150 pages long in a slightly large print and expecting it to take a month to read is just dumb. This is the same school system that eventually made The Princess Bride take up an entire semester in an advanced English class in 9th grade.
Well, it would be extreemely easy to prove that you DID read it. Unless the teacher is completely retarerded, there should be no problem (and if the teacher IS retarded, you have more pressing matters than him/her accusing you once for lying)
Yeah, harder than you might think. Apparently the teacher thought I couldn’t have possibly finished the book that fast but I had taken the time to pinch somebody’s notes who had. Parents were called, mom had to leave work early, it was a mess. Then mom chewed that dumbass up one side and down the other for being a total moron. Day got much better from there!
But yeah this teacher was pretty dumb. Expected a book report to be a short paragraph. Even for a short middle-school level book you can’t possibly list characters, themes, and a basic plot summary in five sentences or less.
Huh, well to be fair, only a quarter of the kids will become wizard Nazis and that really only happens if the parents are total dicks and they pass on their dickness to their child.
Hah! Challenge accepted!
Synopsis/Characters: A retarded girl falls in love with sparkly lazy predatory old man with very good looks. Everyone is expected to approve.
Common themes: people making poor choices, not exploiting their full potential, concentrating on physical beauty too much.
Moral: intense (sexual) love is always good, even when it’s one sided, directed to a baby, between different species, and/or with 80 years age gap, as long as the man is sexy.
There you go!
wasn’t that the actual entire script for all the films
Wait…. is that Arianna from Grrl Power??
Do the kids here get pressed into the army when they hit eighteen??
I think Xander’s school for the Genetically Gifted would be a better choice. I mean, yea, there’s the constant attacks, but at-least the kid would grow up with the knowledge and expertise to get out of a super-powered confrontation in one piece.
And judging from the state of the world, this looks like it would be a valuable life skill.
You could just go to a normal private school. This is Shitropolis. She can take magic classes on the side and practice at home with her mother. And hex her classmates if they try to pick on her. Chances are she’ll get to meet some future teammates too. Besides, what super-bully can stand up to the girl who can wish his powers away like that?
