Sep 10th 2010 5:08PM If a restaurant markets itself as a "family restaurant" then you need to expect to see children. I am not going to eat Chuckie Cheese, when Applebee's is a family restaurant. On the other hand if either one of my children starts "acting out" (they are 6 mos and 2 years) I will promptly pay my bill get my uneaten food to go and leave. I do not expect you to "put up with" my children on the rare occasion that they misbehave or cry. You in turn should realize that you cannot time when a meltdown will happen. I should not have to take my children to an overcrowded Chuckie Cheese because you don't want to be around children. And another thing, when you are in a restaurant (especially a family restaurant) NOBODY wants to hear your foul language. Just because you do not have children and curse like a sailor does not mean everyone around you, (with or without children) want to hear the trash that is coming out of your mouth.
Jul 21st 2010 10:07PM Are you comparing breastfeeding to urination? There is no comparison there....
Jul 9th 2010 12:25AM Steven, you aren't one of those people that mistakenly think that yoga is a religion are you? It really surprises me how many people think it is. HELLO!!! it is an exercise program!
Jun 10th 2010 12:52PM O, that should be plural because there is more than one president to blame and I hate to say it but President Obama is on that list as well.
Jun 8th 2010 6:05PM Veronica, I have read several things that this blogger has posted and I have to disagree with you. I feel that he is very racist. But I do agree with you about the utopian society. However Bastion1001 is correct in the fact that in order to rid our country of racism, everyone has to stop the racism and all races are guilty of it.
Jun 8th 2010 5:54PM Before you get your panties in a wad about the picture, keep in mind it was taken in Michigan in the 40's. That sign was never posted in Mass.
Jun 7th 2010 12:03PM I fully agree with you Chris! As parents it is our job to control what goes into our children's stomachs. If you do not like what the school is serving, pack a lunch. If you cannot afford to send a lunch with your child everyday, let the people who are in charge with providing that lunch (local government, Lunch directors, etc.) that you are unhappy with what they are serving your children. You cannot just sit on your behind and say your are unhappy and expect things to change. You can do something about it!
Jun 5th 2010 12:23PM Mark maybe you should check your facts before you go on a rampage calling everyone wrong. I lived in Germany on the German economy. The students where I lived only went to school 4 days a week. Their school day started at about 9 am and ended about 1 pm. The rest of their "school day" was spent at home doing homework, of which they had about 4 hours of to do (4 hours depended on the student according to my friend Flo). My question to you is do you even have kids in the public school system? Do you personally know any school teachers? If you do have children, I feel sorry for them. You are one of the people that seems to think that it is solely the teacher and school systems job to teach your child. It isn't. As a parent you should be doing just as much if not more to aid in your child's education as the school system. Do not blame the school system for your short-comings. I want to know where you get your figures that teachers have been long overpaid? Cause where I come from, not even close.
Jun 4th 2010 4:32PM I would also like to add that German children go to school significantly less than American children and they do not have the same academic problems our children do.
Jun 4th 2010 4:28PM I would just like to point out that many of you that think that it is just the school and teachers' jobs to make sure your child is educated are the reason why there so many children who do not seem to actually learn. Remember the saying "It takes a village to raise a child"? Well this holds true. The amount of days a child goes to school should be a moot point because their parents should also be teaching them and helping with their schoolwork at home. For the person said that the reason Asian children are so smart is because they go to school 6 days a week obviously does not know much about Asian culture. The reason they are so smart is because their parents are actively taking part in their education. Many parents in the US use school as a babysitter instead of helping in the education of their children. It would not matter to me if my children went to school 1 day a week or 7 days a week, I would still take an active role in their education so that is why my child will succeed.
