[ - ] My DD is in K in a private school. She gets 60-90 mins of homework per night. A different reading book every 2 days, flash cards to read and learn to spell phonetically, a handwriting sheet to complete and 1-2 art projects per week. We have had evenings where we are still doing homework at 6pm... it feels like too much for a kindergartener! It is also not what the school alluded to when we applied. We were under the impression it was progressive in pre K and K, with academics becoming the focus as they got older! How much hw do your kids have in K? 4 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Wow. That's intense. DD in public, when she was in K, it was about 30 min homework - worksheets that involved coloring, tracing letters, parents reading to kids (reading log to fill out). There were 2 major art projects the whole year. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Please raise your hand if you have ever pressured a guy into sex. And by pressure I mean got liquor involved, cornered them in your room, threw yourself on them after they repeatedly said no. I don't find sex with an reluctant party in anyway sexy or remotely a turn-on. How hard is it to make the basic starting point of a sexual liaison be that BOTH parties equally want to participate. 6 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

i've never done anything as pre-meditated as you explain here. but when i was younger, probably once or twice i would give a guy a bj if he seemed sort of sullen and withdrawn with me. and i didn't have enough self esteem to know if he was genuinely not interested, or shy, or just a moody person in a bad mood. i thought the bj would make them happier and make them like me more. is that the same think as pressuring them into a bj they wouldn't have wanted?

i don't think many guys need much incentive to have sex - if a girl offers it up, that's about all they need if the girl is even remotely attractive and a little booze goes a long way if not. i've known girls to show up in guys' beds naked. the fact is, that most guys do not CARE if the next day they never hear from the girl again and their peers don't give them a hard time for it. in fact, if a naked girls shows up in their bed and offers it up and other guys know about it, many guys DO feel pressured to have sex since peers would give them a hard time for passing it up - social norms and all. girls feel pressured or get coerced because they DON'T want to have sex with every guy who approaches them and certianly not 10 minutes after they met them! but sometimes they DO want to, but even then there are again social norms that make this far less acceptable - people who will look down on them for such behavior.

A very close guy friend of mine used to do all of those things to girls. He actually is a good and kind man but he genuinely believed that this was an act that nice girls felt they had to do. I had to actually sit him down and explain that that was bs and died decades ago and then get some of our mutual guy friends to drive the point home to him. He was absolutely horrified when he realized that all of those girls had been saying no and meaning it. [ Reply | More ]
