Are they only sueing the LLC? Which has no assets? Keep quiet, let statute run in case they try to go against you personally, if they have not done so already. [ Reply | More ]

It is highly dependent on state law, but generally, if you properly dissolved the LLC pursuant to the laws of your state the LLC cannot be sued, and you cannot be sued personally. Again, very generally speaking, if you did not follow the formalities of properly dissolving the LLC either the LLC or you can be sued (depending again on state law). If you had a policy of insurance that may provide coverage put them on notice sooner rather than later. [ Reply | More ]

I did not find 7th or 8th grade to be too bad (nor did I find Elem homework to be too bad). HS 9th and beyond gets very heavy. That said, I have kids at other similar HS and unfortunately, have similar experiences. I even hear the same from friends with kids in burbs. It is really unfortunate. You may want to check with your student's teacher. Also, any chance your kid is distracted. If the phone or computer is near by during HW kids can get sucked into other stuff, including well-meaning texts from classmates discussing HW. [ Reply | More ]

You're testing my memory a bit. I think the guidance was 20min per grade, so that would be 120 mins by 5th grade (if you count K). I don't remember many nights where my kid spent that much time, but my memory may be bad. 5th or 6th grades had the History Contest that was VERY time consuming and I think one year had a research paper, which was very time consuming. This said, my Hunter kid was a serious kid from birth and just one of those kids who focused and got work done (with the exception of writing, which is always torture). Can't say the same of all my kids. If your kid is spending lots of time talk to the teachers. I found every teacher in elementary to be kind and approachable. [ Reply | More ]

OR: same here. Instead of peppering them with questions after school, I just say that Im so glad to see them. Amazing how they now open up and want to tell me everything. It helps me keep my cool when they are acting like like hooligans too. [ Reply | More ]

For me, the biggest take away was to stop telling them how they feel and showing them a bit more respect. Its a really quick read and you'll blow through it in no time. I started putting everything into action right away and it helped so much. It can be hard in the moment when they are acting like a brat and you are fed up, but it really helps diffuse the situation. I listen more, involve them in solving whatever issue we are having and generally respect their input more. [ Reply | More ]

I had problems as a child with anxiety after sugar/caffeine as a child. It helped to eat a breakfast with protein rather than cereal or the like. A good diet and regular meals are very important. [ Reply | More ]

Has this been a constant issue or is this a girl around age 12/13? [ Reply | More ]

OP: This is a boy (7yo). It comes and goes. He will get very worried about something and then it will kind of spin out of control. For instance, this morning as we were about to walk out the door, he asked me how cold it was outside. I said it would be cold enough today that he needed his jacket. He then said that one of his classmates told him he he was blushing yesterday at recess (flushed cheeks) and that when you blush, it means you're in love with someone. So, you know, standard 2nd grader goofing/teasing. But my DS doesn't do great with even minor teasing. He's one of those kids that just doesn't ever want to stand out or be the center of attention. So this morning he got super upset thinking it might be too cold out and he'd blush again, resulting in more teasing. He started crying and yelling and stomped off into his room and said he couldn't go to school. I, obviously, made him go. But it took 10 minutes to get him out of the house. And then on the walk to school he held his jacket hood over his face the entire walk (4 blocks) so that his face wouldn't get cold/flushed. Ay yay yay. So we have these types of incidents every so often. They're more of a nuisance thing than serious. But I just feel like I don't experience anxiety at all, so I don't think I deal with it incredibly well. I want to up my game and get him some coping strategies. [ Reply | More ]

Ignore this rude and ignorant poster who clearly has no idea what it is like to have a child who suffers from anxiety. My DD is very similar. The How to Talk book helped me a lot with instances like the one you describe. There are several ways you can go about diffusing this, but all of them involve acknowledging his feelings. I can see that you were really upset when Joey said you were blushing because you loved someone. He embarrassed you and it made you feel bad. Let's think of some solutions: maybe if you wore a hat or a warmer coat? [ Reply | More ]

I'm sorry, this sounds hard. I agree with others that the school needs to step in here. Your teachers response and the counselors are inadequate. [ Reply | More ]

Ha, I think this poster was mixing up the two posts about kids with anxiety. I did too! The other mom spoke to the counselor and teacher who were less than helpful. [ Reply | More ]

Agree. The teachers should be monitoring playground interactions more closely if your DC is struggling. [ Reply | More ]
