"I give kuddos to this mom for believing in her daughter. Why should she not. At this age teenagers are going to do what they want when they want so you might as well believe in them and give them love and support."
Besides, just giving in is so much easier.
Don't want to raise them right? Don't have 'em in the first place.
May 28th 2010 7:33PM "She'd coped with mononucleosis, attention deficit disorder, dysgraphia, depression, strep throat (twice), a severely sprained ankle, pneumonia and countless colds. She tried hard, and she tried not trying. The teachers had accommodated as much as they could. I'd sat with her many nights as she wept over her homework, struggling to complete work she just didn't see the point in doing."
Other than yourself, who considers you a "parenting expert?"
May 28th 2010 7:31PM Our grandson, just coming up on his 4th birthday, has tried that on us a couple of times.
His "reward"? Being put in a corner by himself and ignored until he shuts up.
He doesn't do it anymore.

The chances of your daughter being successful in show business are microscopic.
And do you really believe that Albert Einstein attained a doctorate and became a professor at Princeton University without going BACK to school?
Apr 28th 2010 2:29PM Gee, John, the "smelly" I was talking about was the jet fuel and fumes; sorry if something else popped up in YOUR MIND. I like other human beings just fine, with the possible exception of temperamental folks such as you appear to be; however, I don't relish being overpacked with any of them in a narrow metal tube for hours on end.
Rick, I do not condone driving for 26 hours without a rest, nor have I ever done so. I've driven LA/Omaha/LA twice, both times in company of another driver. We switched off every four hours or so, allowing the passenger to rest/doz as needed. Sorry for not making that clear. I've been driving for over 40 years without an at-fault accident or a traffic violation, point being that to compile such a record, I'd have to be a person of at least average good judgment.

Star athletes who misbehave and commit crimes generally walk, after signing autographs for cops, lawyers, judges, etc.
Fans who misbehave and commit crimes generally go to jail; no one even wants their autographs.
Apr 24th 2010 4:20PM For me, driving wins, hands down; simply no comparison.
Flying is expensive, overcrowded, demoralizing, smelly, noisy and generally depressing; people who do it routinely must have their humanity eroded over a period of time.
I just got back from a flying trip from L.A. to Omaha, and I will never do it again. I drove from L.A. to Omaha just six months ago, 26 hours each way, and while I was tired from that trip, I recovered in one day. If I'd made an overnight stop, it would have been even more pleasant.
