[ - ] Don't believe in the over exaggeration of social economic concentration in tt privates. When ds applied to HS, we were concerned by the comments on tt privates's concentration of super wealthy families. Two years later, I am happy to report that the social impact has been minimal. No one cares about the students' background and dc made friends among the wealthy kids as well as the prep-for-prep kids. They visit each other's home ranging from public housing to butler penthhouse condo, and happily ride the subway as well as the black limo. 8 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

[ - ] -Vent-: I'm pregnant and read online birth boards/message boards. Yes, I know they're universally stupid but they move quickly and help when I'm feeling anxious, which is often (much like UB). I can't stand the women who have kids with Down Syndrome who make the rounds of all the boards telling everyone how wonderful it is and dropping photos of their kids doing cute kid things. I always want to tell them that they're basically proselytizing and are like the Jehovah's Witnesses of the online-message-board world. But of course you can never say that because it would come across as so incredibly mean, like calling them out on their spammy behavior is equivalent to badmouthing their disabled babies. -OK, vent over- 19 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Jesus, they are trying to make the best out of what life has dealt them. They love their kids and want to let other parents know that SN children are gifts like any other child. Pray your baby isn't SN, because it sounds like you're too intolerant to handle that. [ Reply | More ]

Oh, please. What if you had a girl, and went on every fucking board talking about how *AWESOME* it is to have a *GIRL*!!! It would be ridiculous. They had a baby. Yes, they love their babies (like everyone else) but the whole world doesn't need to be sucked in to their world to provide therapy for their new situation. They don't have to "let the world know their children are "gifts" any more than anyone else needs to. [ Reply | More ]

op: I've actually read this,--it's a good book. Not sure what kind of "perspective" you think it's supposed to give. It's about families who have adjusted to having children who are different from them. Some had a choice, some didn't. Personally I think either choice is valid, and you don't have to beat others over the head with your decision. If you had a DS baby and chose to terminate, you shouldn't have go on boards to justify and validate that. And, vice versa if you chose to continue your pregnancy. [ Reply | More ]

You misunderstand me!! I'm not talking about moms who post cute pics of their SN kids on boards. Go to it--I would love to see them! I'm talking about moms (and there are a few) who post the SAME post to EVERY SINGLE board. As in, they have a 5yo and they post pictures of their 5yo to the Jan 15 birth board, the feb 15 birth board, the mar 15 birth board, the 'prenatal testing results' birth board, etc. it's clearly an organized effort.
